KONTRAPUNKTUS is set to return to live performances with a six-date concert season this June with its special musical production of THE ITALIANS. The season will include a stop at Grace First Presbyterian Church in Long Beach on Friday, June 10th.
Led by acclaimed Concertmaster, MELODY YE YUAN and featuring a world-class chamber ensemble that hail from the prestigious Juilliard School and Colburn School, THE ITALIANS is a concert for the ages! KONTRAPUNKTUS will be performing the exquisite works of the Italian Baroque masters Domenico Gabrielli, Francesco Geminiani, Pietro Locatelli, Domenico Scarlatti, Tomaso Antonio Vitale, and Antonio Vivaldi.
Our musical offering will also feature one of the fastest rising stars in classical music, AUBREE OLIVERSON, performing the rarely played, yet coveted masterpiece, “Sinfonia in B-flat Major” by the enigmatic and tragic genius, Giovanni Battista Pergolesi.
Tickets for every concert is available for sale on EVENTBRITE (Keyword: Kontrapunktus) with doors for each concert opening at 6 PM. The performances will commence at 7:30 PM. General admission tickets start at $29.95 and are discounted to $19.95 for senior citizens, veterans, and students.
This concert is made possible, in part, by the generous support of the Arts Council for Long Beach.
