Musikanten Montana hosts the 18th annual Montana Early Music Festival Jan. 16-19, with concerts in four Montana cities Bozeman, Butte, Missoula and Helena performing music of Vivaldi. Works include Gloria, Beatus Vir, Dixit Dominus and Winter from the Four Seasons, featuring Carrie Krause, violin.
Musikanten Artistic Director Kerry Krebill conducts favorite festival soloists and the 2019 MEMF Chorus and Orchestra. The orchestra musicians are Early Music specialists, coming to Montana from around the country, and play instruments of Vivaldi's time, including Baroque strings and horns, trumpets, oboes d'amore and oboes di caccia, recorders, and portatief organ. Musikanten Montana presents these pieces as Historically Informed Performances (HIP).
