On Friday, May 10, 2019 at 8:00 p.m., Concerts at Saint Mary will present the instrumental ensemble Washington’s Camerata.
Established in 2009, Washington’s Camerata is a period instrument ensemble dedicated to the music of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Founding flautists Kelly Kazik and Sarah McIver achieve innovative programming through the ensemble’s unique instrumentation to bring charming and rarely heard music back to life.
In addition to performances throughout the Mid-Atlantic Region, Washington’s Camerata is currently in residence at the historic St. George’s Episcopal Church in Fredericksburg, Virginia, where the ensemble performs in conjunction with the popular chamber music series Beautiful Music in a Beautiful Space. From 2009 to 2012 Washington’s Camerata had the unique privilege to serve as artists-in-residence for the Washington Parish at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Oak Grove. Washington Parish was founded by the Washington, Monroe and Lee families.
The concert program, which will be presented by Washington’s Camerata, will be taking the audience on a musical tour of eighteenth-century Europe! Admission to the concert is free and a free-will offering will be taken to support future Concerts at Saint Mary productions. Following the concert there will be a reception in the church’s Parish Life Center where there will be an opportunity to meet the artists and share fellowship with others.
