Trace the origins of
Vienna’s musical legacy with music from the earliest “Viennese
School”—early 16th-century composers Paul Hofhaimer, Heinrich
Isaac, and Ludwig Senfl—to their followers in Viennese musical
tradition, including Brahms, Schubert, Schoenberg, and Webern.
These later Viennese works are performed in new arrangements
for the Consort’s early instruments by composer David Froom.
Plus, a world premiere performance of Froom’s setting of
"Lament of the City" by poet Sue Standing.

In 12th-century Jerusalem,
Jews, Christians, and Muslims live side by side in peace—or so
they hope. As tensions rise, the ruling sultan asks: “Which
religion is the one most beloved by G-d?” Lives, and the future
of Jerusalem itself, are on the line as the brilliant Jewish
merchant Nathan seeks an answer.
This funny and timely
Shakespeare-styled play is chock full of mistaken identities,
foiled romances, and relationships across cultural and
religious divides. Michael Bloom’s smart new adaptation of
Gotthold Ephraim Lessing's 1779 play celebrates the common
humanity that unites us all.
