English ensemble Red Priest brings unique style to
The English group Red Priest will bring
its unique and creative style of Baroque music to the University of
the Ozarks at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 11, as part of the Walton Arts &
Named after the flame-haired priest, Antonio Vivaldi,
this extraordinary English ensemble has redefined the art of Baroque
music performance, combining extensive research with swashbuckling style,
creative re-composition, tremendous emotion and exciting staging.
International critics have described their style as
electrifying, daring, supercharged,
brilliant, and utterly inspired.
Formed in 1997, Red Priest gives more than 50 concerts a year throughout
Europe and the United States.
The Washington Post wrote: For people
who appreciate classical music but have a little secret it bores
them the answer is Red Priest. The four flamboyantly dressed
British musicians mug, throw funny lines at us and make us laugh. But
something important is going on, and it happens fast
is effortless, a barrel of fun and almost invisibly subtle
forged and cunningly phrased
legitimately Baroque and thoroughly
musical. An electrified audience shouted and cheered.
Tickets for the concert are $10 each and can be purchased
at the box office on the night of the performance or by calling 979-1349.
UofO faculty, staff and students are provided one free ticket each.
