The Cherry Center seeks to put the welfare of our audiences first. Due to the rise in Covid cases in Monterey County and the aggressive transmission of the Omicron variant, the Cherry Center is canceling the performance scheduled for January 2nd. We apologize for any inconvenience. Ticket holders will be contacted for a full refund.
The Cherry Trio (Elizabeth Gaver – baroque violin, Penny Hanna -viola da gamba, Michael Peterson – harpsichord) with guest violinist David Wilson will perform music from the seventeenth century on baroque violins, viola da gamba, and harpsichord. The program includes trio sonatas by Purcell, Rosenmüller and Muffat, a Marais suite for viola da gamba, and harpsichord solo by Fischer. The French, Italian, German, and English styles of this period stand in contrast to one another in creative ways that are often combined within the same piece. Typical for the early Baroque period, these works express a wide range of “affects” or emotions – the melancholy adagio, stately allemande, exuberant passacaglia and much more!
The Cherry Trio has performed at the Cherry Center annually for ten years to welcome the New Year. Unfortunately we couldn’t carry on that tradition last year, but we are very happy to be together again in 2022! As the concert will be held indoors, proof of vaccination is required, as well as mandatory masking while indoors.
