Special Event: Exodus & Evolution at La Voile
November 5, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$50
One family, a hundred years of musical excellence!
A multigenerational family of Jewish musicians, the Lupo’s exodus from Iberia, migration to Northern Italy, and recruitment to England coincided with key developments in the evolution of the viol and the flourishing of its associated repertoire. Join us in celebrating the Lupo’s with music spanning over a century, including pieces composed by members of the Lupo family!
We’ll begin in Iberia with heartfelt medieval and renaissance selections connected to the Lupo’s Sephardic roots. Then we’ll migrate to Northern Italy, where the Lupo’s established themselves as accomplished viol players, and enjoy a handful of lighthearted and witty pieces from the early 16th century. Finally, we’ll end in England, where in 1540 the Lupo’s were recruited for King Henry VIII’s first viol consort.
Ashley Mulcahy, mezzo-soprano
James Perretta, viol
Judah Coffman, viol
Jacob Jahiel, viol
