The nineteenth season of the Midtown Concerts closes with a very special program, St. Bart's Director of Music, William Trafka, Grammy-nominated British countertenor Ryland Angel, members of the Queens Baroque Ensemble, and special guest countertenor, Jonathan May. These immensely talented musicians have put together a program focusing on the Marian theme, the love between mother and child, featuring works by composers Johannes Schenck, J.S. Bach, Scarlatti, and Buxtehude. 

 

Midtown Concerts sponsors lunchtime performances of music of the 18th century and earlier for anyone seeking a respite from the midtown hustle and bustle. Ensembles are chosen by a jury of early-music specialists from the metropolitan area.
