This year’s Voxtet members have been busy right from the first day. In addition to singing the Bach masses with Masaaki Suzuki and Schola and Juilliard, they recently spent a weekend in Norfolk, Connecticut, as guests of David Low. There they worked on continuo repertoire with baroque cellist Phoebe Carrai. We faculty gave a recital for them, cooked them dinner, went for a hike, and then we sang a concert in the converted barn, all part of a memorable weekend in the beautiful New England autumn.
Previously, the soprano Emma Kirkby and lutenist Jakob Lindberg had spent a week in residence with the Voxtet, culminating in a Renaissance party and performance with lute accompaniment.
