Two members of this nationally active ensemble ensemble, Anna Washburn and her husband, Aaron Westman, are very definitely Sonoma County residents. Aaron grew up in Santa Rosa and now directs the Young people’s Chamber Orchestra. Anna and Aaron have been supporters of the Redwood Violin Project from the very beginning. The violin will be strung with baroque style gut strings for this performance.
Agave Baroque is “an energized, free-spirited group” (Early Music America Magazine, Fall 2014), based in the San Francisco Bay Area, and specializing in string chamber music of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Agave has received numerous awards and accolades and gained local and national attention for its “rapturous music,” “brilliant… profound playing” (EMA Magazine), and growing discography. Now in its tenth season, Agave continues its fruitful affiliations with star countertenor Reginald Mobley and InterMusic SF, and continues to be a unique and innovative voice in the chamber music community nationally.
