fourth annual early music singalong:
MadriGals, Chansons and Lieder, oh my!

In what has become a beloved annual tradition, audience members become the choir as Artistic Director Nicole Baker leads the group in a selection of familiar madrigals, chansons and Lieder.  We'll provide the music, you provide your voice!  New this year: the Singalong will feature a free informal "performance" of workshop repertoire, open to the public.
Tell your friends and family!

Carissimi's Jephte

Giacomo Carissimi's profoundly beautiful oratorio Jephte, a monument of the early Baroque era, will form the cornerstone of this wide-ranging program of sacred music. Soprano Claire Fedoruk will join Jouyssance in the role of Jephte's tragic daughter, along with some of Southern California's top early music instrumentalists.
