Immerse yourself in exquisite music from 17th Century Italy as Canada’s celebrated Elektra Women’s Choir and guest conductor, Alexander Weimann perform virtuosic music by seven women composers of the baroque era. Focusing on the vast legacy of Isabella Leonarda (1620-1704), this is a program of music first heard in convents across Northern Italy. Discover composers Caterina Assandra, Raphaella Aleotti, Bianca Maria Meda, Maria Xaviera Peruchona, Chiara Margarita Cozzolani, and Suplitia Cesis. Weimann, Artistic Director of the Pacific Baroque Orchestra, directs Elektra and an ensemble of some of BC’s finest early music instrumentalists in a captivating evening of beautiful music.  Joining Elektra for part of the program are the twelve auditioned singers of the Mira Youth Mentorship Program.
