Winter Oasis leans heavily on the mysterious and austere power of German Baroque music to explore the external darkness and internal warmth we experience at the heart of winter. The music weaves through a series of querulous, bleak, and stir-crazy episodes toward an oasis of celestial solace, before coming to a fiery finish in Vivaldi’s beloved Concerto for Four Violins.

Relic is a period chamber orchestra founded in 2022 by six Juilliard graduates with the mission to bring live performances of early music to communities in every corner of the country (and the world!). Currently in its very first season, Relic has quickly built a reputation for its intimate, dramatic, cutting-edge performances of both well-loved and lesser-known masterworks of the Baroque era. Recent and upcoming engagements include appearances at Electric Earth Concerts (NH) and Live! at 10th & G (Washington, DC), as well as performance and educational residencies at Western Michigan University, the University of Maryland, and Temple University (PA).
