Festival 2016 in Santo Domingo
BBSO Music Director John Thomas Dodson just returned from the Dominican Republic after leading a very successful music festival there. Conciertos de la Villa de Santo Domingo features performances and educational activities in historic venues located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Colonial City. Founded by Christopher Columbus, the Colonial City was the Spanish stronghold during the time of colonization of the New World in the 16th Century and is recognized today as the first city in the Western hemisphere.
Dodson led performances with Camerata Colonial, a chamber orchestra drawn from professional musicians in the United States, including several musicians who also perform with the BBSO. They performed music by Handel, Mozart and Haydn and collaborated with soloists from the United States and Great Britain, violinist Janet Sung and violist Paul Silverthorne. The festival featured as its visiting artist group the world-renowned Peabody Renaissance Ensemble performing music written during the very time as the building of the Colonial City.
