 MannesBaroqueChamberPlayersMÚSICOS PARA MÚSICOS:
a benefit for Puerto Rico

Members of the Mannes Baroque Chamber Players are emerging professionals at the Mannes School of Music who are passionate about stylistic performance of Baroque music as well as engaging the larger community as artist-citizens. This is their third program dedicated to helping fellow musicians in Puerto Rico continue to recover from the devastation of Hurricane Maria.

In a gesture of island-mainland solidarity, the ensemble welcomes actors Yaraní Medina and Daniel Irizarry in an improvisational “Comedia del’Arte” intermezzo, with audience participation.
