FREE ADMISSION Pacific MusicWorks presents The Resounding Lyre, the second installment of our Founder’s Series. This year we are honoring patron, Bill McJohn by celebrating all things harp and lyre.
The chosen instrument of Greek gods and heroes Apollo, Hermes, Eros, and Orpheus, the lyre’s significance in Greek culture and its impact on music cannot be overstated. The Resounding Lyre explores works written for the harp, the baroque emanation of the lyre, spanning Italian, German, and Celtic traditions.
Featuring artists Stephen Stubbs, Maxine Eilander, Tekla Cunningham, Henry Lebedinsky, David Morris, and Danielle Reutter-Harrah. With music by Isabella Leonarda, Alessandro Stradella, Johann Heinrich Schmelzer, Georg Frideric Händel and a sneak peak of our spring concert of Orfeo by Claudio Monteverdi.
