TENET’s 10th season will include two exciting performances of Claudio Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610 by the Green Mountain Project, a special project of TENET that began in 2010 to celebrate the work's 400th anniversary of publication. 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.
Over the past 10 years, the Green Mountain Project has performed Monteverdi's 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. In January 2018, the ensemble came together to perform a recreated Vespers by Michael Praetorius under conductor David Fallis of the Toronto Consort.
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 is creating a mini-festival to highlight the groups within the larger group. Performances of Claudio Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610 will take place on Thursday and Sunday, January 3 and 6, 2019. More intimate performances will highlight Blue Heron, Dark Horse Consort, TENET, and friends from the Green Mountain Project on Friday and Saturday, January 4 and 5, 2019.
