Music in the Mountains (MIM) announces their spring concert with Sinfonia Spirituosa taking place in Grass Valley on April 2nd 2022 at 4pm at Peace Lutheran Church. Tickets are on sale now.

Sinfonia Spirituosa is a chamber orchestra dedicated to presenting bold, historically-informed performances on period instruments. Through vibrant, collegial exchange, they aspire to faithfully bring to life the broad spectrum of color, affect, and rhetoric inherent in the music of the Baroque era. 

The ensemble’s makeup of strings, flute, bassoon, oboe, voice, harpsichord, organ, archlute, theorbo and baroque guitar allows for programing which displays an astonishingly wide variety of national styles and unique instrument combinations. Sinfonia Spirituosa’s repertoire, which spans over 100 years of Baroque music, exemplifies the spontaneous, improvisatory character of the period, and showcases the startling, cosmopolitan harmonic language of the late 17th century, the rich complexity of the German baroque style, and the sumptuous textures and dramatic flair of the late French composers.

The members of Sinfonia Spirituosa lead multi-faceted careers as university professors, recording artists, soloists, conductors, chamber musicians, and symphony players. They are active as teachers and performers on both period and modern instruments, and many are directors of their own ensembles specializing in early music, romantic music, new music, jazz, and Gypsy swing.

A central tenet of Sinfonia Spirituosa’s vision is celebrating the music of the past while inspiring young musicians of the future. Through immersion in a creative rehearsal and performance environment, their Mentorship Program aims to stimulate and support promising high school, undergraduate, and graduate level instrumentalists and singers who are curious, open-minded, and committed to exploring original instruments and studying the musical language of the Baroque period. Sinfonia Spirituosa is thrilled to have violist Breana McCullough join their Mentorship Program for our spring 2022 California concerts!
