We welcome spring with the sunny music of Domenico Gabrielli (Italian composer and virtuoso cellist) and Antonio Vivaldi, representing Italy. Spain is represented by Diego Ortiz, and by Domenico Scarlatti, who served the Spanish royal family. Adding spice, Antonio Pendolfi Mealli wrote very dramatic music, as you might expect from a composer who lived a colorful life and is reported to have murdered a castrato.
Tickets for the series of three concerts are available for $50.
