OUR FIRST CONCERT:
Telemann’s Paris Quartets
Saturday, October 3, 7:30pm
Trinity Episcopal Church
326 Madison Avenue
Covington, KY 41011
Welcome to Catacoustic’s 15th season!
We have musicians at the top of their fields coming to town to perform music from different centuries and countries and written for different instruments:
- a Baroque violinist who is as much master of her instrument as Joshua Bell is of the modern violin
- an internationally known consort of early trombones
- an extraordinary quartet from a time when “quartet” meant Baroque violin, Baroque flute, viola da gamba, and harpsichord
- a specially requested concert of music written by and for women from a time when such a thing was almost unheard of
- our 15th anniversary extravaganza: a genuine world premiere of an opera that was never performed when it was new (1685) and has never been heard anywhere in the world
You’ll Love Our Music
The Catacoustic Consort presents a variety of vocal and instrumental music from Renaissance chamber music to Baroque opera. The finest in Cincinnati chamber music, featuring performances on period instruments and internationally acclaimed guest artists at every concert!
Instruments You’ve Never Seen
Early instruments used in performance include the bass, tenor, and treble viola da gamba, lirone, pardessus de viole, Renaissance cittern, bandora, Baroque flute, lute, theorbo, cornetto, Baroque harp, chamber organ, and harpsichord, among others.
We Teach & Give Back
Catacoustic offers early music workshops and classes, and sponsors an annual Early Music Scholarship used for instruments, training, or early music education. Scholarship recipients have included performers on triple harp, viola da gamba, recorder, and natural horn.
