5BMF: Quicksilver
Returning to Five Borough Music Festival after their brilliant performance on our 2010-2011 season, the Baroque masters of Quicksilver bring their stunning virtuosity and engaging historical performance practice to Queens and Brooklyn this season! Led by violinists Robert Mealy and Julie Andrijeski, the ensemble will perform their program Off the Beaten Track: Chamber Works from Moravia, the Netherlands, Sweden, Poland and beyond.

Comprised of captivating and rarely heard gems from off the beaten track, the program features works by van Wichel, Mielczewski, Schmeltzer, Kempis, Fux and more. Performers: Julie Andrijeski, violin; Robert Mealy, violin; Dominic Teresi, dulcian; Avi Stein, harpsichord; Charles Weaver, theorbo and guitar. http://5bmf.org/2017/05/13/quicksilver/ May 12: $15, $10, $10.

VAF: Dido and Aeneas – Mark Morris Dance Group
When this masterwork premiered 27 years ago, critics hailed the provocative work as "a tour de force of artistic storytelling...that smashes and rewrites boundaries" (Los Angeles Times). In revival, Morris's Dido and Aeneas still entices the eye and raises the pulse, with Morris conducting the orchestra, choral ensemble and soloists in the 17th-century score. "Delight defines Mark Morris' Dido and Aeneas. Delight in sex, in music, in pathos, in mischief and even evil. Delight...and joy" (Chicago Tribune). Music lovers will delight in the live music, as legendary opera star Stephanie Blythe sings the roles of the love-dazed Dido and the evil Sorceress. "That astonishing voice--dark, vehement, burning...to hear Ms. Blythe sing...is to hear the roles anew" (The New York Times). By Henry Purcell, Mark Morris Dance Group and Music Ensemble, Choreography by Mark Morris, Conducted by Mark Morris,  Featuring Stephanie Blythe, mezzo-soprano.

Tidewater Concert Band
The Tidewater Concert Band has provided musical entertainment for Hampton Roads, Virginia since 1971. The band is made up of volunteers of all ages and was organized in Portsmouth, Virginia in February 1971 by the late David Mitchell, a longtime band director at Churchland High School. David called on former band students, local band directors and other local musicians to form a fully-instrumented top-notch community band. The band did a centerpiece performance at Yorktown's Bicentennial Celebration in 1976. The band has gone through many phases and musicians throughout its long history, but continues today to provide quality music to the community. The concert – weather permitting – is outside on the back lawn of Reformation along with ice cream and irresistible toppings. Bring your lawn chairs and enjoy an afternoon of rousing patriotic music and other popular selections to honor Armed Forces Day. Open to the public.

VAF: Berlioz Requiem
In this towering masterwork, the huge orchestra is augmented with additional players in every section, plus brass choirs in the four corners of the hall and a chorus of 140 singers, making it a once-in-a-lifetime event for music lovers.

Hear the Virginia Symphony Orchestra perform this great work for the first time!

In conclusion of their 10th anniversary season,  Guerilla Opera presents the world-premiere of composer and theater artist Rick Burkhardt’s “Game: the Play—or—Play: the Game.” “Game: the Play—or—Play: the Game” is approximately 70 minutes in duration and sung in English.

Four singer/actors (sopranos Aliana de la Guardia, Jennifer Ashe and Nina Guo, and baritone Brian Church) pair with four instrumentalist/actors (percussionist Mike Williams, saxophonist Phillip Stäudlin, clarinetst Rane Moore and violinist Lilit Hartunian) to depict playing a board game that literally folds out onto the stage with the audience in-the-round. The sound world develops from the actual sounds of gaming—rolling dice, shuffling cards, moving small game pieces, etc.—and extends into those of the musical instruments.  Audience talk-back will directly follow the performances on Thursday, May 25 and Friday, May 26, with members of the cast and creative team. Tickets are $15 for general admission and $10 for senior citizens. Tickets are free for students, as available the day of with a valid ID.
