Jupiter Ensemble with Lea Desandre

"[Artistic Director] Thomas Dunford has gathered together a team of some of the finest musicians of his generation… Brace yourselves for some exquisitely dizzy spells at the hand of Jupiter.” —Érik Orsenna, French politician and novelist

Passionate, timeless, virtuosic. The Jupiter Ensemble, with mezzo soprano Lea Desandre, presents a recital celebrating iconic baroque composer Antonio Vivaldi. Highlighting his lesser known—but no less spectacular—works, this program features lush arrangements for voice and sparkling concertos for lute and cello in a tribute to Vivaldi’s enduring vitality.

For more than 80 years, the Artist Series has brought the globe's finest jazz, classical, world music and dance performers to Boulder. Many of these performances sell out; order your tickets today to guarantee the best seats.
