Wyoming Baroque: Heroes and Heroines

Join us for an amazing evening with a delicious Italian dinner followed by a moving concert by Wyoming Baroque on Wednesday, March 29. This Heroes and Heroines performance is part of the group’s regional tour of Montana and Wyoming.

Late 17th and early 18th century Baroque composers often evoked legendary figures from ancient Greece and classical literature to express their musical passion. Heroes and Heroines emulates that tradition with music inspired by literary heroes like Don Quixote and Hercules, and celebrates Venetian masters Antonio Vivaldi as well as Barbara Strozzi, who had a successful career as a composer in the early 18th century when it was rare for women to do so.

The concert is under the direction of Wyoming Baroque Music director Dr. Mark Elliot Bergman, and features Brenda Hodnett as soprano soloist. Instruments featured include two baroque violins, a baroque viola, baroque cello, baroque double bass, harpsichord, and baroque soprano. This is a unique opportunity to hear Baroque music performed in keeping with how it was originally composed.

Tickets for Wyoming Baroque: Heroes and Heroines are $75 per person for non-members and $65 per person for Center of the West members. Purchase yours online at tickets.centerofthewest.org.
