Tramontana: The Good, The Bad, and The Crazy
Tramontana comes from the classical name of one of the North Winds, and is a group of five singers dedicated to performing and finding the joy in early music. Join them for a program of music that was written for wealthy patrons to show off their musical establishments (and social status) at feasts and other smaller gatherings, such as madrigals by Gesualdo, Marenzio, and Monteverdi. In addition to great music, learn about the role of the musical establishments in the major households of Italy during this time and how the madrigal form spread to England.
Tickets are $15 and include admission to the museum, $10 for seniors, students, and members – come early to see the museum!
