The Handel and Haydn Society is coming to the Vineyard for a concert on Jan. 15 to benefit Navigator Homes. Two performers from the society will be performing a recital at the Federated Church in Edgartown with a reception to follow.

Guy Fishman is the principal cellist of the Handel and Haydn Society, and Renée Hemsing is a violinist with the group. The repertoire for the recital is Sonata in D minor for unaccompanied violin, BWV 1001, by J.S. Bach, and Suite in C major for unaccompanied cello, BWV 1009, by Bach. 

Ms. Hemsing and Mr. Fishman will be performing with instruments of the period, created decades before the music was written. Ms. Hemsing performs on a early-18th century Dutch violin, and Mr. Fishman plays a rare cello made in Rome in 1704 by David Tecchler.

The concert begins at 3 p.m. and tickets are $25 at the door. Funds raised go toward construction of Navigator Homes of Martha’s Vineyard.The Federated Church is located at 45 South Summer street, Edgartown.
