In April 2013, Parthenia brings its distinctive viol consort sound to Santa Fe and Albuquerque, New Mexico, with guest artists actor Paul Hecht and mezzo-soprano Jacqueline Horner-Kwiatek, in “When Music & Sweet Poetry Agree,” Parthenia's popular program interweaving music and poetry from the time of Shakespeare and John Donne.
In the Elizabethan world, poetry and music were inseparable: poetry was conceived as song and music took its forms and phrasing from poetry. In this critically acclaimed Parthenia program, dramatic readings of the poetry of Shakespeare and Donne are interspersed with instrumental and vocal musical vignettes, featuring consort songs for voice and viols in a beautifully distinct musical form credited to the great Elizabethan composer William Byrd.
Parthenia's concert season is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. Parthenia is a sponsored organization of Artspire, a program of the New York Foundation for the Arts, and is a member of Early Music America and Chamber Music America.
