    Overview 

    Overview

    Before opera there was the madrigal comedy – unstaged fun, dramatic collections of short choral pieces that, when sung consecutively, told a story. This program will include portions of Adriano Banchieri’s Contrappunto Bestiale, as well as the sensuous, sexy (and for the time, racy) music of Italian and English madrigalists of the late 16th century and early baroque. Instruments like harpsichord and the theorbo are featured. We welcome our founder and Artistic Director Emeritus Evanne Browne as she returns to guest-conduct this concert. A pre-concert talk, entitled Madrigal Comedy: Social Entertainment around 1600 will be presented by Evanne Browne and Amanda Balestrieri at 6:45 PM on Saturday.
