Hamilton College Performing Arts presents the ACRONYM Ensemble on Friday, Sept. 29, at 7:30 p.m., in Wellin Hall, Schambach Center.
The Baroque string ensemble ACRONYM is dedicated to giving modern premieres of the wild instrumental music of the seventeenth century. This program, Valley of Tears: Bass Cantatas and Instrumental Sonatas of Johann Rosenmüller alternates large ensemble chamber sonatas published in Venice in 1670 with unpublished bass cantatas featuring baritone Jesse Blumberg, which ACRONYM has transcribed from manuscripts recently rediscovered in Berlin.
Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for senior citizens, and $5 for students. For more information, call the box office at 859-4331 or visit us at www.hamilton.edu/performingarts or on Facebook at Wellin Hall, Schambach Center for Music and the Performing Arts.
