Orpheus Baroque, St. Jacob's Chamber Choir and soloists in Handel's fantastic cantata.
Sunday 13 February 2022 16.00Ends approximately 17.00
In a unique collaboration with S:t Jacob’s Kammarkör, Orpheus Baroque is now realizing the dream of performing Georg Friedrich Handel’s incredible cantata, Ode for St. Cecilia's Day. Conducted by Gary Graden. The soloists are Maria Keohane and Anders J. Dahlin.
Since the formation of Orpheus Baroque in 2015 by Baroque-loving members of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, the ensemble has also developed into an important meeting place for some of Sweden’s leading Baroque musicians. The ensemble plays period instruments and since it was founded, violinist Elin Gabrielsson (member of, among other things, Italian Europa Galante) has served as concertmaster and cellist Johannes Rostamo (solo cellist for the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra) has served as artistic director.
Concerts with Orpheus Baroque often feature guest performances by top international musicians in early music. The ensemble has been led by Manfredo Kramer, Dan Laurin, Peter Spissky and Luca Guglielmi.
