Music from 17th Century Spain for Voice and Baroque Guitar: This Early Music concert presents songs of love, devotion and jealousy sung in Spanish by soprano Rachel Elezi and played on baroque guitar by Annalisa Ewald. The concert is free to attend. Donations accepted.
Rachel Elezi, soprano, brings a voice of exceptional richness and clarity ranging from baroque song to contemporary opera. After her Lincoln Center performance at the Leonard Bernstein Centennial, she completed an extensive tour of Lithuania. This summer will find her in Germany for Mozart Abend: Bergedorfer Schloss, Hamburg, a yearly festival honoring the composer.
Annalisa Ewald, guitarist, focuses on music by Latin American guitar composers and has transcribed a collection of classic tangos by Argentinian singer Carlos Gardel for classical guitar. Her solo Latin guitar album “Annalisa Ewald Live At The Factory Underground” charted in the Billboard Top Ten on the Traditional Classical chart.
Circe’s Consort is an ensemble exploring seldom-heard baroque music from Spain, Italy, France and England. It is a new concept introducing old music.
UCP's Concert Series has hosted Pro Arte Chamber Orchestra of Greater Washington (PACOdc), Swing Dixie Jazz, Keltish, Bobby Jo Valentine and many other groups and soloists.
