The Arts at the Martha’s Vineyard Hebrew Center will present the San Francisco-based early music ensemble Passamezzo Moderno in a concert of 17th Century instrumental music from Rome using original instruments. The concert will be held in the Harriet B. Freedberg Learning Center at the Martha’s Vineyard Hebrew Center, 130 Center street in Vineyard Haven, on Thursday, June 13 at 7:30 p.m. It is sponsored by the Martha’s Vineyard Chamber Music Society.
Passamezzo Moderno, founded in 2005, is a period ensemble that performs the music of three centuries, from 1530 to 1830, and specializes in the instrumental music of the 17th century. Jonathan Davis, harpsichord and organ; David Granger, dulcian and bassoon; and Edwin Huizinga and Adriane Post, violins, all perform on the instruments that were used when the music was first written 300 years ago.
Tickets are $18 and may be ordered online at ticketsmv.com beginning next week. For more information, call the Martha’s Vineyard Hebrew Center at 508-693-0745. The concert will be repeated in Boston on Saturday, June 15, at 5 p.m., at the Boston Conservatory Theater, 31 Hemenway street.
