Relic Performing at St. John’s

Relic is a conductorless period chamber orchestra that aims to connect with audiences through intimate, innovative and dramatic representations of early music, and to present these performances to communities in all 50 states. Members of Relic perform on original eighteenth century instruments, or their replicas, and are fluent in the improvisational and ornamental languages of the Baroque and Classical era.

Join Relic on a journey through the depths of winter. This program leans heavily on the mysterious and austere power of German sacred baroque repertoire to explore the external darkness and internal warmth we experience at the heart of winter. The music weaves through a series of querulous, bleak, and stir-crazy episodes toward an oasis of celestial solace, before coming to a fiery finish in Vivaldi’s beloved Concerto for Four Violins.
