Contact: Gabe Gomez
(SANTA FE, NM) Parthenia is a quartet of viols currently very popular in New York City’s early music scene. In this concert, the inseparable bond between poetry and music is highlighted in a program that blends dramatic readings from Shakespeare and John Donne with intimate chamber music of Shakespeare’s London to create an evening of sung poetry and spoken music. The quartet—Rosamund Morley on treble, Lawrence Lipnik on tenor, and Beverly Au and Lisa Terry on bass viols—will be joined by mezzo-soprano Jacqueline Horner-Kwiatek and actor Paul Hecht.
