The Singing Violins: Italy

voyage sonique

Come and hear Voyage Sonique and their two virtuoso violinists in this program of gorgeous Italian baroque music. Displaying the vocal, singing qualities of the violin, these trio sonatas are rapturous in their sweeping lines and gorgeous harmonies.

Voyage Sonique is a period ensemble devoted to historical performance of baroque music. The founding members – Juilliard alumni – met during their studies at The Juilliard School, forming the ensemble after discovering a tight-knit friendship and united passion and playing styles. As individual musicians, each enjoys a flourishing solo and chamber career: Jeffrey Girton recently gave his solo concerto Lincoln Center debut and performed with the Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra in Handel’s Almira; Augusta McKay Lodge celebrates her Naxos solo album release of Beyond Bach and Vivaldi and together with Keiran Campbell gave her Carnegie Hall debut; Keiran recently performed with Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra in their 2017 season and is a renowned modern and baroque cellist; Robert Warner has performed with conductors such as Masaaki Suzuki, Kristian Bezuidenhout, and Ton Koopman; and Adam Cockerham pursues a busy career in New York and on the West Coast with ensembles such as Trinity Baroque Orchestra and Philharmonia Chamber Players and can be found on an album with soprano Danielle Sampson. Currently in their second season as an ensemble, Voyage Sonique has already experienced a promising start and looks forward to a full year of concerts including a program at Bloomington Early Music Festival as part of EMA’s Emerging Artists, and was featured in concert with GEMS (Gotham Early Music Scene, Inc.) on their Midtown Concert Series.
