Madrigal History Tour

Where did the madrigal begin? How did it develop? Who were the first composers to write madrigals? The Women's Antique Vocal Ensemble will take you on a tour of the history of the madrigal and clear up some of the mysteries surrounding this very popular form of musical composition. Composers include Verdelot, Monteverdi, Rore, Marenzio, Gesualdo, Arcadelt, Gabrieli, Festa, Flecha, Guerrero, Hassler, and Schütz. We will be joined on this musical journey by Bay Area instrumentalists Shira Kammen, Howard Kadis, Tobi Szuts, Adaiha MacAdam-Somer, and Farley Pearce.
