Start the weekend right with great music in a relaxed setting

 

Welcome to

Happy Hour Chamber Concerts – Online!

During this time of pandemic we are continuing our mission to bring Early Music artists and appreciative audiences together in an intimate and informal setting. What’s different this season is that we are bringing this wonderful music into your home – or wherever else you want to hear it. Happy Hour Chamber Concerts is online this year. When you purchase a ticket, you will receive a link to a pre-recorded concert you can view online. We’ll even throw in the wine and snacks! Our artists and board members are sharing a favorite recipe and wine paring you can fix ahead of time to enjoy during the concert! Fifteen minutes after the end of the concert, you are invited to an hour-long video conversation with the musicians and the rest of the audience. You can click here to get a more complete picture of how HHCC Online works, along with some FAQs that will help you maximize your enjoyment of great music.

We know the best way to experience this incredible music is in live performance, but we hope these online concerts will help to create a happy hour or two while we all work to keep each other healthy. Our thanks to our incredible musicians and our wonderful patrons for making this possible!

Perspectives of Antiquity

This program explores some of the changes seen throughout the Baroque period, centered in this case around the French Court and Church. We view Bach as antiquity, just as Bach viewed Byrd as antiquity. The instruments which were so ubiquitous in the courts of 1650 are mostly absent by 1800. Within Early Music, there is so much diversity and evolution which is fascinating to behold.
