TENET’s eighth season will include two exciting performances by the Green Mountain Project, a special project of TENET that began in 2010 to celebrate the 400th anniversary of publication for Claudio Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610. Since the project’s inception, soprano and artistic director Jolle Greenleaf has gathered an all-star cast of singers and instrumentalists including the acclaimed music director and conductor Scott Metcalfe and the brass ensemble Dark Horse Consort to perform in annual offerings.
The group joins forces to honor Claudio Monteverdi through his beloved Vespers of 1610 alongside and in addition to newly recreated vespers by the project’s music director Scott Metcalfe that feature works by Monteverdi and his contemporaries Giovanni Gabrielli, Ciara Margarita Cozzolani, and the French composer Marc-Antoine Charpentier.
The Green Mountain Project has become a fixture on the New York Early Music scene, earning rave reviews from the public and critics alike. The project has been performed in extraordinary New York City landmark venues including the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, the Church of St. Jean Baptiste, and the Church of St. Joseph in Greenwich Village; in Greenwich Connecticut’s Church of St. Barnabas; and in Boston area churches including the Church of St. Paul, and St. Cecilia Parish.
This season, the Green Mountain Project will present two programs: Claudio Monteverdi’s Selva Morale e spirituale on Saturday, December 30, 2017 and Michael Praetorius’ Vespers on Wednesday, January 3, 2018.
