La Donna Musicale at SoHip

La Donna Musicale performs early music composed by women. Laury Gutierrez, the director and viola da gamba player; as well as Laura Gulley on violin, form the core of the group. They have issued four CDs and a fifth compilation disc. Laury does extensive and meticulous research to make for exquisite concerts. Her dedication is to be admired.

Every year La Donna Musicale participates in the SoHIP Summer Early Music Concert Series. Last night Shari Alise Wilson, soprano, and Daniela Tosic, mezzo soprano, harmonized beautifully. The very tall arched ceiling of Emmanuel Church's Lindsey Chapel was perfect for the glorious sound of the duo. After the concert Laury stood at the door with her viola da gamba and bid the audience good night individually. Such personal style. When will they issue their next CD?

Hi History Fan,
Nice blog about the Gamba concert. Isn't it nice to get that personal touch from the performer?
