Aulos Ensemble to offer "A Baroque Christmas" at BYU

Guest artists the Aulos Ensemble will present "A Baroque Christmas," an evening of traditional carols, instrumental noels and cantatas, at Brigham Young University Saturday, Dec. 2, at 7:30 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall.

Admission will be $12 or $8 with student ID. Tickets can be purchased at the Fine Arts Ticket Office, by calling (801) 422-7664 or by visiting performances.byu.edu.

Guest soprano Julianne Baird is scheduled to join the quintet for this performance.

The program will begin with Vivaldi's Concerto in D Major, followed by the time-honored carols "When Christ was Born on Earth," "Coventry Carol" and "Shepherds Shake Off Your Drowsy Sleep." A series of cantatas by Bach will then be featured, including "Mein Glaubiges Herze" and "Susser Trost, mein Jesus kommt."

Following an intermission, the group will play "Greensleeves" and "Es ist ein Rose." Other traditionals will wrap up the performance, such as "Vous qui desirez sans fin, "Grace soit rendue" and "Noel Provencal."

The Aulos Ensemble was formed in 1973 by five graduates of the Juilliard School. The group consists of Christoper Krueger, flute traverso; Marc Schachman, baroque oboe; Linda Quan, baroque violin; Myron Lutzke, baroque cello; and Arthur Haas, harpsichord. In addition to receiving accolades for its extensive touring program, the Aulos Ensemble's "A Baroque Christmas" recording is a favorite of many across America.
