The Vivaldi Project, a premier period instrument ensemble dedicated to presenting 17th- and 18th-century string repertoire, presents music by Vivaldi, Mozart, and their contemporaries at 3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 21 in the Williams Center for the Arts, Lafayette College.
Tickets are $15 and can be purchased by visiting or calling the Williams Center box office at (610) 330-5009 from noon to 2 p.m., and 4 to 5 p.m. on weekdays, plus one hour before the performance.
Under the leadership of violinist Elizabeth Field and cellist Stephanie Vial, The Vivaldi Project has been gaining critical acclaim for its brilliant and expressive string playing, as well as its innovative programming which combines scholarship and performance to both educate and delight audiences. The members and guest artists of the ensemble include many of the leading early music soloists, concertmasters, teachers, and scholars from throughout the U.S.
The name, The Vivaldi Project, refers not only to the group’s core repertoire, but also the project of probing into the roots of Vivaldi’s distinctive musical style, which has had ramifications for music, art, and Vivaldi’s birthplace of Venice that reverberate into the 21st century.
Elizabeth Field, the founder and director of the Vivaldi Project, is the 2014–2015 Alan and Wendy Pesky Artist-in-Residence.
