Salish Sea Early Music Festival returns in 2024

Submitted by the Salish Sea Early Music Festival

Welcome to the 2024 Salish Sea Early Music Festival!

Please join fabulous Northwest favorites baroque guitarist Stephen Stubbs, harpsichordist Elisabeth Wright, viola da gambist Susie Napper, and violinists David Greenberg and Carrie Krause, along with other favorite musicians including guitarist Oleg Timofeyev, violinist Elisabeth Phelps, violinist/violist Lindsey Strand-Polyak, violist Victoria Gunn and cellist Adaiha MacAdam-Somer.

Irene Roldan, a phenomenal young Spanish harpsichordist, comes from Basel, Switzerland to perform an innovative program of Spanish works for solo harpsichord from the baroque era in selected cities alongside a second program of chamber music by Bach.

Elizaveta Miller, the wonderful new Russian harpsichord professor at McGill in Montreal, will join us for a program of concerti with strings.

Lutenist Michael Freimuth comes from northern Germany, where he is continually active with period instrument groups in Europe (currently recording Heinrich Schütz in Vienna with Roland Wilson).

Salish Sea Early Music Festival is delighted to welcome soprano Arwen Myers from Portland for the first time.

Hope to see everyone soon!
