Join us for a concert featuring one of the most unique pieces of French chamber music: La Gamme. Published in 1723, Marais successfully blends elements of the French and ever-encroaching Italian style into an epic character piece showcasing the virtuosity of the violin and viola da gamba.

The Academy Players are musical ambassadors for the Academy of Sacred Drama. Founded at The Juilliard School and reestablished through the Academy of Sacred Drama, the ensemble participated in the Academy’s first oratorio reading of Charpentier’s Mors Saülis et Jonathae in its inaugural year as well as performing instrumental music at Juilliard at Aiken and in prestigious New York City venues including the Kosciuszko Foundation, the Miller Theater at Columbia University, and The Met Museum. 2016–2017 performances featured French and Italian trio sonatas in New York and Minnesota.
