The All Seasons Chamber Players will use its beautiful 2-manual Flemish harpsichord in combination with flute and strings for a celebration of music from the Baroque period. The program will include Corelli’s Sonata da Camera in D Major; Maria Anna Martinez’s Sonata da Cimbalo in G Major for flute & continua; two works for cello and harpsichord by Tartini and Frescobaldi; and Telemann’s Parisian Quartet in G Minor.

They include flutist Brenda Sakofsky of New City, NY; violinist Robert Lawrence of New York City; cellist E. Zoe Hassman of New York City; harpsichordist Jean Strickholm of Demarest; and harpsichordist Ron Levy of Teaneck.
