The Portland Baroque Orchestra will be joined by world-renowned soprano Suzie LeBlanco for this concert celebrating Purcell & Shakespeare at the First Baptist Church. They'll be playing original songs from Shakespeare's time, including selections from Purcell's 1692 piece The Fairy-Queen (based on Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream). The Portland Baroque Orchestra has been exposing audiences to the wonders of 17th-century music since the early 1980s. Complete with period instruments built at the time of Bach and Handel, as well as modern creations with historically-accurate designs, the ensemble creates an authentic and lively soundscape that makes the music of the era accessible to modern audiences.
