The composers featured in this program are Handel, Vivaldi, Zelenka, Veracini, Telemann and Wagenseil.
The featured instrumentalists will be Meg Owens & Geoffrey Burgess, oboes; Jörg-Michael Schwarz & Karen Marie Marmer, violins; Risa Browder, viola; John Moran, cello; Stephanie Corwin, bassoon; Motomi Igarashi, bass and Dongsok Shin, harpsichord.
A fully-catered reception follows the concert where the audience can meet the artists.

REBEL (pronounced “Re-BEL” and named after French baroque composer Jean-Féry Rebel), a chamber music ensemble specializing in 17th- & 18th-century music performing on period instruments, is arguably the most aired American baroque ensemble on radio today. REBEL was National Public Radio’s ensemble-in-residence in 1999 and has appeared live on NPR’s Performance Today and MPR’s St. Paul Sunday. They have been hailed by The New York Times as “Sophisticated and Beguiling” and praised by the Los Angeles Times for their “astonishingly vital music-making”. The ensemble records for Deutsche Harmonia Mundi , Dorian, ATMA and Naxos and tours internationally.
