Musicians of Balam

The Musicians of BALAM met in 2015 when they were brought together by Carlos Fittante of BALAM Dance Theatre to prepare a concert in this venue. A second concert by BALAM and the Musicians was presented this past January, and now the Musicians are appearing in their first outing without the dance – although everything about the dance and spirit of BALAM infuses their presentation. Sonatas for Spring features seasonal works for strings composed by Corelli, Marini, Marais, Buxtehude, de Visée, and Castello.

The Musicians of BALAM
Maureen Murchie, violin
Lisa Terry, viola da gamba
Adam Cockerham, theorbo
