This evening’s production is the fourth iteration of a Northwest Baroque Masterworks Project. It is part of an ongoing collaboration that has combined the resources of several Cascadian producing and presenting organizations to realize unique projects of larger-scale Baroque and Classical Masterworks on period instruments. The collaborating musical organizations in this case are the Portland Baroque Orchestra, Early Music Seattle, Early Music Society of the Islands (Victoria, British Columbia), and Early Music Vancouver (British Columbia). This all-female project seemed like a great fit for all of the partners in that to work successfully, it required key artists from all over the region and from both sides of the border. These special projects are about making great music, fostering organizational partnerships, and building a connected community of Early Music lovers throughout our whole region – thank you for your support.
