With a program of poignant Airs de Cour, the cantata “Ariane et Bacchus” by Michel Pignolet Monteclair, virtosic solos and instrumental dance suites pastorally inspired, Nash Baroque returns to Berkeley Fringe, presenting a varied program of 18thc. “Music of Arcadia.” Mezzo Soprano Danielle Sampson will be joined by Vicki Melin, traverso; Hallie Pridham, viola da gamba; Adam Cockerham, theorbo; and Susie Fong, harpsichord, for this diverting lunchtime concert. Nash Baroque is a period chamber ensemble whose instrumental and vocal repertoire ranges from the early Baroque to Classical, with a focus on music of the French Baroque. Nash Baroque draws on a number of talented musicians from both the East and West Coasts, forming versatile ensembles for the chosen repertoire. It is comprised of soloists, chamber musicians and guest artists, all recognized specialists in the performance of 17th and 18th century music. More information at nashbaroque.org.
