Canti del trecento: Vocal duets from 14th - c. Italy
performed by Bicinium
Drew Minter and Judith Malafronte, voices
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 11 | 8 PM
Drew Minter and Judith Malafronte have been performing together for longer than they care to admit. Judy participated in Drew’s trial-by-fire with the Waverly Consort, Drew directed Judy in Handel’s Serse at the Göttingen Handel Festival, Judy has coached Drew’s medieval ensemble, and Drew is lecturer in music at Vassar, Judy’s alma mater. Both have sung with American Bach Soloists, Musica Sacra, the Newberry Consort, and the Folger Consort, to name a few.
Individually, the list goes on…. and on. In the upcoming season, Drew will again direct The Play of Daniel at the Cloisters, The Fairy Queen at Amherst Early Music, and is the stage director and acting teacher at La Lingua della Lyrica, an Italian summer program for opera singers in Novafeltria, Italy. This spring he will perform the role of Egeo in Handel’s Teseo with Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, and his medieval trio Trefoil will record their third disc, “Fleur de valeur.”
While teaching undergraduates and grad students in various places at Yale, Judy continues her work as a critic for Opera News and parterre.com.
