An unforgettable night of Baroque virtuosity
Antoine Plante leads Mercury in a sensational evening of passionate Baroque works by Vivaldi, Handel and more from around the world. Featuring spirited violin solos by concertmaster Jonathan Godfrey, it will be a spectacular night of love and war!
*Program Update (2.28.2019): We regret to announce that our soloist, Rachel Barton Pine, has to withdraw from our upcoming performance due to her ongoing recovery from a recent knee injury. We wish her a speedy recovery and look forward to working with her in the future.
This concert is in honor and memory of longtime subscriber and Mercury-lover Margaret Reinke.
