Happy New Year! If you haven't made a resolution to support local music by going to lots of concerts, you should. Start this week!
Your options are limited, but quality! On Saturday evening, the Green Mountain Project is on Saturday at 7:30 pm at St. Paul's Church in Cambridge. This is the brainchild of local Scott Metcalfe, as well as soprano Jolle Greanleaf and others. From their website:
Our highly acclaimed Green Mountain Project goes to Cambridge, MA with our new program Vespers of 1640, which features works drawn from Claudio Monteverdi’s monumental collection Selva Morale e Spirituale, as well as works by Gabrieli in honor of the 400th anniversary of his death. This performance already happened in New York - you can read the New York Times gush about it here.
And on Sunday, the Arabella Ensemble will be at the Arlington Street Church at 5:30 pm singing songs for winter by Bach, Sibelius, Brahms, and others.
