from the Maestro
For our Concert Season 31, we continue our tradition of excellence and bring you another fabulous selection of extraordinary concerts by the three VoxAmaDeus performing groups:
  • Vox Renaissance Consort returns with its traditional Renaissance Noël concert and brings you back in time to the glory of Old Europe, with lush costumes and period instruments, and heavenly music of Italian, English and German masters, as well as traditional carols. New this year is an additional performance of this popular concert at the Church of the Good Samaritan in Paoli!

  • Ama Deus Ensemble will captivate you with the glorious music of Beethoven in October, the traditional December Messiahs on Baroque instruments (new this year, an additional performance at historic St. Mark’s Church in Philadelphia) and, for our Good Friday concert, Mozart’s sublime Requiem paired with Beethoven’s dramatic oratorio Christ on the Mount of Olives. This last work was premiered by Beethoven in 1803 at the same concert in which he premiered a work being performed in our October concert, the Piano Concerto No. 3 (with yours truly conducting and playing on the Bösendorfer Imperial Grand!). And finally, for our ever-popular January concert, now in its seventh edition, an evening of Gershwin hits, featuring renowned British pianist Peter Donohoe, back by popular demand.

  • Camerata Ama Deus brings you three exciting programs (spiced with Maestro’s entertaining “live notes“): an all-Bach program in September (with yours truly on the Bösendorfer Concert Grand), all-Vivaldi in November, and a fabulous mix of French and Venetian Baroque masters in April.

Finally, two intimate concerts featuring Maestro & Guests will round out the season. Be a part of our exciting Concert Season 31.
