Waking the Spirit: Andrew Willis & friends

  • Chapel of the Cross 304 E. Franklin Street Chapel Hill, NC 27516

Baroque & Beyond – North Carolina produces period-music concerts under the nonprofit umbrella of  Preservation Chapel Hill. The series was launched in 2008 by Artistic Director Beverly Biggs at the invitation of Preservation Chapel Hill, which has a rich history of sponsoring musical performances.

Andrew Willis will play on two fortepianos, after Stein (1784) and Dulcken (1815).  Joining him will be Rebecca Troxler, baroque flute, and Stephanie Vial, cello, in trios by CPE Bach and Haydn; and Sally Renée Todd, fortepiano, in the Grande Sonate for four hands by virtuoso composer Ignaz Moscheles. Each instrument is uniquely well suited to awaken the spirit of the compositions on the program.
