Did you know Baroque was the new music of the 17th century? In the 21st century, it is the fastest growing niche in the classical music business. The dynamically engaging ensemble REBEL returns to the Alexander Kasser Theater with a specially crafted program featuring works by both well-known and lesser-known composers. In this remarkable musical journey, REBEL presents works by composers of vastly different backgrounds–Handel from the royal city of London; Telemann from the urban center of Hamburg; and Scheiffelhut, Fischer, and Schmierer from the country courts of southern Germany–in an exciting and rare arrangement of compositions, all of which were sponsored by the royalty and aristocracy of these towns and cities.
