Red Priest - Presented by Friends of Music at QueensFebruary 19, 2011 8:00 PMDana Auditorium, Queens University of Charlotte
Founded in 1997, and named after the flame-haired priest Antonio Vivaldi, Red Priest has given hundreds of sell-out concerts at many of the world's most prestigious festivals. These musicians have redefined the art of period performance, creating a virtual orchestra through their creative arrangements, performing from memory with swashbuckling virtuosity, heart-on-sleeve emotion and compelling stagecraft. Their repertoire ranges from obscure 17th century sonatas to the most famous works of Bach and Vivaldi, all presented in imaginative programs with cinematically inspired titles: "Priest on the Run," "Nightmare in Venice," "Pirates of the Baroque" and "Johann, I'm Only Dancing!"
