One of few professional lute ensembles in existence today, the Venere Lute Quartet performs Renaissance and early Baroque masterworks and is actively expanding the surviving lute ensemble repertoire with its own arrangements. The ensemble has performed throughout the United States and in Europe. Some appearances include the Lute Society of America, the Seattle Early Music Guild, La Guitarra California, Amherst Early Music Festival, Cambridge Society for Early Music, and the Fodella Foundation Series in Milan, Italy. Members of the Quartet share a deep commitment to ensemble playing, lute scholarship, and audience education.
The performers who will participate in the recital are:
