attended Voices of Music: Virtuoso Baroque Concertos on Mar 31 2019

What a memorable, near perfect evening of early music by the very best performers in our area. The only aspect of this concert I regret is the venue: it is a gorgeous church, but seating was wooden pews without cushions, and sight lines were...continued

attended Holiday Brass and Choral Concert on Dec 14 2018

Very enjoyable, particularly the second half, which was more varied than the first.

But the pews at St. Michael's were very uncomfortable, and the sight lines pretty bad from the back half of the church where our seats were.

attended Music of the Baroque: The Family Bach on Nov 22 2016

I love the music of Bach, so from my perspective, any Bach is good Bach. But I had great expectations for this performance, and they weren't met. The performance was workmanlike, but not inspiring. I think the audience agreed with me, because it...continued

attended The Shepherd King (Il Re Pastore) on Sep 27 2007


I have not attended a PBO event before and I will from now on. It really was a wonderful show. It is not Mozart's best or most mature piece, but it's a glimpse at the genius in the youth. It was great fun to hear it done on the...continued

attended Marin Baroque’s And All in Friendly Consort Meet on Nov 21 2015

What beautiful music! The orchestra and choir were superb, and the triumphant Handel compositions were very uplifting! It was nice to have a reception following the concert. A lovely evening!

attended Handel’s Opera Amadigi di Gaula on Oct 17 2009

We enjoyed ourselves and had a very nice time. The Boston Baroque and Maestro Pearlman lived up to their reputation (my first time seeing them live after hearing many recordings) and the singers were all quite good. Personally, I don't usually...continued

attended Seattle Symphony: Conductor Andrew Manze Leads Baroque Themes & Variations on May 08 2010

Andrew Manze is funny and smart about music as only Brits can be. Totally enjoyed his stories about the composers and compositions. The music was good, not great, (though it was played well by the Symphony), but with the addition of the...continued

attended Boston Baroque: Handel’s Messiah on Dec 09 2017

A superb performance with period instruments. Jordan Hall is the perfect venue- intimate and vibrant- and Martin Pearlman’s playing/conducting rocked. Soloists, especially Ava Pine, were spectacular. The trumpet/bass aria was the best ever. The...continued
