Spring 2022 Sanctuary Salon Concert

After the success of our November concert, we return with another Sanctuary Salon concert showcasing some of our local artists who have made the Bay Area synonymous with early music! This one-afternoon-only concert is a unique way to sample the riches of our local scene, internationally renowned for its depth and excellence.

Nash Baroque (Vicki Melin, traverso; David Wilson, violin; Farley Pearce, cello; Katherine Heater, harpsichord) will start off the festivities with music written by two sojourners to the British Isles: George Frideric Handel and Francesco Geminiani. We then dive into a medieval fantasy land of trouvère songs and dances—a “game of drones,” if you will—with the harp and percussion duo of Cheryl Ann Fulton & Peter Maund. Finally, Musica Pacifica (Judith Linsenberg, recorder; David Wilson, violin; Alexa Haynes-Pilon, cello and viola da gamba; Katherine Heater, harpsichord) will close off the program with a “short and suite” selections of works from Johann Pachelbel, Jean-Marie Leclair, and Jean-Philippe Rameau.

We will also welcome again exceptional young musicians from the Junior Bach Festival, a Berkeley institution for seven decades.
