Communique: ACRONYM Gives Vivaldi's "4 Seasons" A New Spin-With Old Instruments


Chamber Music Wilmington brings the early music ensemble ACRONYM to Beckwith Recital Hall Sunday, February 25th.   The group performs Rosenmuller, Bertali, Valentini, and Krieger with early instruments...but the musicians seem most excited to present Vivaldi's "Four Seasons" in a way you've probably never heard before. 

Listen above to Doug Balliet (violone) and Loren Ludwig (viola de gamba). Tickets are available online, by telephone 910-962-3500, at Kenan Auditorium in advance, or at the door at UNCW's Cultural Arts Building one hour prior to the show. 

Prior to the Sunday evening performance, musicians from ACRONYM will hold a Masterclass at WHQR at 2:00-What Makes it Baroque? While performer spots are filled, email Barbara McKenzie at barbaramckenzie2008@gmail.com to request an observer seat.
