Musical Poetry, Poetical Music, and a Prayer
Monday, December 7 at 7:30pm
10 seats available for the live performance at Firehouse + live streamed
RVA Baroque presents a concert where Shakespeare meets Tori Amos and harpsichord and viola da gamba trade riffs with lyrical rap, and includes a Christmas prayer for peace.
Featured artists are Googsz Kinnard (rapper and poet), Anne O’Byrne (singer), Keydron Dunn (singer), Joel Kumro (keyboard), and Brady Lanier (viola da gamba).
RVA Baroque is a period instrument ensemble that began performing in 2009 as Jefferson Baroque. Since then they’ve given modern-day premieres of half a dozen chamber works from French manuscripts and periodicals.
A mainstay of Classical Revolution RVA, the group has regularly teamed up with the Oratorio Society of Richmond, the Colonial Dance Club of Richmond, the Greater Richmond Concert Chorale, the Latin Ballet of Virginia, Quill Theatre, and Capitol Opera Richmond.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic began RVA Baroque has given masked, socially distanced live concerts at the Branch Museum of Architecture and Design, and The Richmond Public Library chose RVA Baroque to re-start their 2020-2021 concert series.
