MCMS brings 17th century sonatas to life “The Mystical Violin & Courteous Lute,” at MSU’s Reynolds Recital Hall
Montana Chamber Music Society presents another round of great chamber music under the Big Sky with its fall edition, “The Mystical Violin & Courteous Lute,” on Friday, November 9th at MSU’s Reynolds Recital Hall beginning at 7:30pm. Please join for a wonderful evening featuring Carrie Krause on baroque violin and John Lenti on theorbo. The program will be comprised of seventeenth century sonatas for violin and lute.
Carrie Krause serves as concertmaster of the Bozeman Symphony, maintains a private studio of students, and is the founding director of the Second String Orchestra. She specializes in early music and performs throughout the nation, appearing as concertmaster of New Trinity Baroque, Pacific Baroque, and the San Francisco Bach Choir, associate concertmaster of Apollo’s Fire in Cleveland, and with Chatham Baroque in Pittsburgh, NYS Baroque in Ithaca, Portland Baroque, Seattle Baroque, and the Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado. She has appeared as soloist with Apollo’s Fire in Miller Theatre, the Fairbanks Symphony, the Casper Symphony, and the Bozeman Symphony.
John Lenti, described by The Seattle Times as “a joy to behold,” is regularly beheld playing lute, theorbo, and baroque guitar with lots of orchestras, choirs, and opera companies on both coasts of the United States, as well as in the interior, non-coastal part, and a few, coastal or otherwise, in other countries. While orchestral work as an accompanist and concerto soloist comprises most of his career, chamber music is John’s primary interest and he enjoys touring with his groups Wayward Sisters, the I-90 Collective, and Ostraka, while appearing as a guest with many other notable ensembles.
Admission to all Montana Chamber Music Society performances is $27 for adults, $20 for seniors, and $10 for students. Tickets may be purchased at www.montanachambermusicsociety.org. These are also available at Cactus Records in Downtown Bozeman and at the door, depending on availability. Net proceeds from these programs support MCMS’s mission to present great chamber music performances throughout Montana year-round. •
