Aulos Ensemble | Dec 3–5

In Dulci Jubilo

Join the musicians of Aulos and special guest soprano Julianne Baird as they celebrate their valedictory season—as well as the holiday season—with a festive concert of 16th through 18th century favorites in Aulos’ own transcriptions, including Alessandro Scarlatti’s Christmas Cantata, French noëls with musettes and rigaudons by François Couperin and Jean-Philippe Rameau, and a selection of arias by Johann Sebastian Bach, each with references to this special time of year. This Christmas-themed program was inspired and honed during the group’s regular concerts at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, where they performed in front of the museum’s famed Christmas tree and 18th-century Neapolitan nativity in the 1980s and 1990s, which became the basis for two award-winning recordings. 

Don’t miss this chance to usher in the new year and this special opportunity to celebrate a group of early music pioneers, several with Bay Area roots!

Christopher Krueger, flauto traverso; Marc Schachman, baroque oboe; Linda Quan, baroque violin; Myron Lutzke, baroque cello; Arthur Haas, harpsichord
