View the program

SPBCThis program centers around works by Clérembault and Telemann, especially on their series of cantatas for solo voice with a single instrument. The Harmonischer Gottesdienst is a series of cantatas for solo voice, one obligato instrument and basso continuo that Telemann composed for every Sunday of the Lutheran church year. Medée is part of a series of secular cantatas that Clérembault published for solo voice and one obligato instrument. Telemann was very receptive to international influences in his cantatas; therefore, it will be interesting to hear these two cantatas in a single program.

Addy Sterrett ~ soprano
Seula Isabelle Lee ~ violin
Balint Karosi ~ harpsichord
Ana Kim ~ cello

Addy, Seula, Balint, and Ana first started playing together playing services at Saint Peter's Church in midtown Manhattan, where Balint founded the Saint Peter’s Bach Collegium in 2016. They perform a wide variety of genres — repertoire ranging from Charpentier to living composers. Within the group, they have attended the Yale School of Music and The Juilliard School, where they have studied modern and historical performance, and early music voice. They perform regularly with ensembles within the New York City area including the orchestra at Trinity Church Wall Street, New York Baroque Incorporated, and outside the country with groups including Les Arts Florissants, Los Angeles Master Chorale, and Bach Collegium Japan.
