Description

As part of its year long 175th anniversary celebration, St. Paul's Episcopal Church Patchogue and The Stony Brook Baroque Players, under the direction of Arthur Haas, are proud to present a program of vocal and instrumental masterpieces from the Baroque era on Saturday, April 21, 7pm, at St. Paul's. Featured works include an aria by J.S. Bach for tenor, horn, and strings, a scintillating quartet from Tafelmusik by Telemann, an evocative chamber concerto by Vivaldi, and a magnificent orchestra chaconne by Georg Muffat. In addition, and possibly for the first time ever on Long Island, we will perform a sonata for hurdy gurdy and harpsichord. This popular instrument in France during the reign of Louis XIV has hardly been played since. The acoustics of St. Paul's 19th century church, along with the beauty of the church itself, will make for a magnificent evening of music and celebration.
