La Jolla Music Society continues this season’s Revelle Chamber Music Series with Europa Galante at MCASD Sherwood Auditorium.  Founded in 1990 by Fabio Biondi, Europa Galante in a few short years has become the most internationally renowned and awarded Italian baroque music ensemble, receiving ‘Record of the Year’ nominations in Spain, Canada, Sweden, France and Finland. With a wide-ranging repertoire from the operas of Handel and Vivaldi to the great instrumental works of the eighteenth century, Europa Galante’s fresh performances on period instruments are hailed for their vitality and flair. 

La Jolla Music Society enhances the concert-going experience by presenting “Preludes” – pre-concert chats and performances – prior to each performance, free to ticket-holders.  Stanley Walens, avid musician, anthropologist, and cultural historian gives a pre-concert talk at 7 pm.
