The 17th century was a major turning point for Western music.  Composers began writing instrumental sonatas with contrasting sections, giving way to florid ornamentation over a simple bass line.  This move away from earlier styles required a new type of spontaneity that allowed the performers to demonstrate virtuosic skills on rapidly evolving instruments.  Sol Divino takes a slice from the late Renaissance and pairs this with the early Baroque masterworks of Castello, Frescobaldi, and Monteverdi in a concert that celebrates the instruments, the composers, and the music.  Jody Miller & Jonathan DeLoach (recorder); Erik Schmalz (trombone); Mía Mangano (violone); Kelly Brzozowski (harp); Gregory Hamilton (theorbo); and Barbara Weiss (organ).  $20 suggested donation; $10 for discounted categories.
