Seattle Baroque Orchestra is joined by violinist Julie Andrijeski for A Twelfth Night Celebration: Festive Music from the English Theaters. The program includes selections from The Tempest (Matthew Locke), King Arthur and The Old Batchelor (Henry Purcell), Acis and Galatea (Handel), and works by Avison, Sammartini, and others. Join us as the Orchestra re-imagines the merrymaking of London’s festive Twelfth Night Christmas celebrations.
Julie Andrijeski, violin, and has been lauded for her “invigorating verve and imagination” (Washington Post) and “velvety, consistently attractive sound” (New York Times). She is Artistic Director of the Atlanta Baroque Orchestra; holds principal positions with New York State Baroque (Concertmaster), Quicksilver (Co-Director with Robert Mealy), Apollo’s Fire (Principal Player), Les Délices, the Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra, and The King’s Noyse.
Andrijeski is a full-time Lecturer at Case Western Reserve University where she teaches early music performance practices, Baroque dance, and directs the Case/CIM Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Ensembles. Her unique musical performance style is greatly influenced by her knowledge and skilled performance of Baroque dance, and she often combines these two mediums on stage, in the classroom, and at workshops. Andrijeski’s teaching engagements also include residencies at the Oberlin Conservatory, Indiana University, Juilliard, the University of Southern California, and the University of Colorado – Boulder. Andrijeski’s recordings can be found on Dorian Recordings, Avie, Koch, Acis Productions, Centaur, and Musica Omnia.
