Baroque Musicians Perform

Loomis Chaffee students, faculty, and staff enjoyed an evening of Baroque music courtesy of guest musicians The Sebastians, a Yale University and NYC-based chamber music ensemble on Wednesday, April 20, in the Hubbard Performance Hall.  

The concert featured works by classical composers J.S. Bach, Elisabeth Jacquette de La Guerre, Johann Jakob Froberger, Johann Heinrich Schmelzer, and Georg Philipp Telemann. 

According to the group’s website, The Sebastians perform with a core quartet of two violins, cello, and keyboard, adding other strings, winds, brass, singers, and more as the repertoire requires. For this concert, the performers included founder Daniel Lee on violin; Sarah Stone on cello; and Jeffrey Grossman on harpsichord.  

In addition to the performance, Mr. Lee and Ms. Stone visited the Chamber Music Ensemble class earlier in the day to talk with students about composition, musical theory, and their experiences as professional musicians.  

The visit and performance were funded by the Joseph S. Stookins Lecture Fund.
