Virtuoso violinist Emlyn Ngai and the Hartt Collegium Musicum will perform music of the 17th and 18th centuries at 4 p.m. on Sunday, April 22, at South Church, 242 Salmon Brook Street.

The Bruce Porter Memorial Music Series is proud to welcome the Hartt Collegium back to Granby for the fourth time. The Collegium is an orchestra of students at the Hartt School of Music who play violin, viola, cello, double bass, oboe, bassoon, flute and harpsichord. Coached by violinist Emlyn Ngai and harpsichordist Kenneth Nott, the ensemble plays Baroque music with passion, precision and exuberance.

Spend an afternoon traveling back in time to hear music of the courts and cathedrals of Europe. The Collegium program will feature Yuhao Chang and Kaitlin Pet in Johann Sebastian Bach’s Concerto for Oboe and Violin and masterpieces by Georg Frideric Handel, John Dowland, Heinrich Ignatz Franz Biber and Johann Friedrich Fasch.

Founded in 2012, the Bruce Porter Memorial Music Series is in its sixth year of bringing world-class performances to the community that Bruce Porter served for many years as the music director at South Church. Thanks to the Granby Education Foundation for its support of the 2017-2018 Season.
