Midsummer Follies

The days are long and the nights short, and we welcome the summer solstice with musical follies. We look beyond the courtly music of the baroque to the dance music and songs that were popular in the cafés, taverns, and country fairs. Our midsummer celebration takes us from the British Isles to northern Europe—and from France to New France, featuring music that migrated across the Atlantic and remains part of the Québecois folk tradition today.


John Abberger, oboe
Geneviève Gilardeau, violin
Michael Unterman, cello
Jonathan Stuchbery, lute/guitar

Repertoire includes:

Ballets du village en trio

Michel Corrette
Concerto comique

Traditional music from Quebec, the British Isles & Scandinavia, in dialogue with ‘composed’ music.
