Kingsbury Ensemble Concert promises French Baroque Delicacies
Sunday, November 20 at 7:00 p.m. The Kingsbury Ensemble, St. Louis’s early music group, presents “Music for a Royal Wedding” at St. Peter’s.
The concert includes music that would have been heard at an imaginary day at the French court of Louis XIV including works by Lully and Marin Marais.
The St. Peter’s Choir will join with Kingsbury Ensemble for a rare performance of the grand motet “Dominus Regnavit” by Jean-Joseph Mondonville (1711–1772). Soloists from the choir for this performance include Arianna Aerie and Lindsay Parker-Klimpel, sopranos; Roberta Hmiel, alto; DeWayne Trainer, tenor; and Jim Kalkbrenner, bass.
Co-founded and directed by Maryse Carlin, the Kingsbury Ensemble, one of the Midwest’s premiere early music ensembles, presents concerts of music from the Baroque to the Romantic period with historical flair, dazzling virtuosity and creative artistry. We are very excited to be joining with the Kingsbury Ensemble for what promises to be a memorable night of elegantly performed French Baroque music.
Tickets for this concert are $20 ($15 for seniors; $8 for students) and available at Kingsburyensemble.net or at the door.
