Sweet Philomela

Friday, September 22 at 7:30 pm

Ars Lyrica’s season opener introduces exotic musical works inspired by Philomela, a mythical princess of Athens whose transformation into a nightingale has fascinated poets and musicians for centuries. Its primary offering, Johann Adolph Hasse’s 1769 lyric cantata L’Armonica, combines the ethereal sounds of the glass harmonica with a soprano soloist and full Baroque orchestra.
