Season Ticket

Con Tre Violini

Rachel Podger, Manami Mizumoto, Carrie Krause, baroque violin
Nate Helgeson, dulcian, and John Lenti, theorbo

BaMM brings the world’s most beloved baroque violinist to Montana for eight new year performances. Revered recording artist, Wigmore Hall recitalist, & Juilliard faculty-member Rachel Podger joins us from the UK for a program featuring some of the 17th century’s best repertoire, joyously scored for three violins and continuo, including a very fresh interpretation of Pachelbel’s ubiquitous Canon. Our concert tour includes a workshop with Rachel presented by the UM School of Music on January 7.

January in Bozeman, Billings, Helena, & Red Lodge

Candide's Voltaire

Arwen Meyers, soprano & Aaron Shehan, tenor
Carrie Krause, baroque violin & Josh Lee, viola da gamba
John Lenti, theorbo

Voltaire was a walking superlative. He was the most famous man in Europe. He was also the most prolific author, the best-loved playwright, the busiest letter-writer. He was the most in love, and he drank the most coffee. He was the greatest annoyance to cruelty, tyranny, and ignorance. Near the end of his amazingly long life, he wrote the hilarious, tragic, philosophical novel for which he is best-known, Candide. We’ll show you how he got there in this uncategorizable program. You want love songs? We got ‘em, sung by literal Grammy-winners. Hilarity? You bet. Tragedy? Yeah, bring a hanky. Care for some heart-stopping virtuoso music on viola da gamba? We’ll throw that in, too.

February in Bozeman, Paradise, Helena, & Columbus
