‘Valley Vivaldi’ launches annual summer series in Allentown

Friday, June 9, 2017 by The Press in Focus

The arrival of June signals the start of “Valley Vivaldi,” a summer series of four chamber ensemble concerts by instrumentalists from the locally-based Pennsylvania Sinfonia Orchestra.

The concerts showcase chamber music by 17th and 18th century composers (Vivaldi, J. S. Bach and Telemann are a few of the enduring favorites) presented by small ensembles of mixed instrumentalists. The qualities of each instrument and the virtuosic playing of each musician are easily heard in the clear, transparent textures.
