Edmonton Chamber Music Society presents Red Priest at Robertson Wesley United Church, 10209 133 St on March 2, 2018 at 7:30 pm.

Named after the flame-haired Venetian priest Antonio Vivaldi, British baroque instrumental group Red Priest is the only early music group in the world to have been compared in the press to the Rolling Stones, Jackson Pollock, the Marx Brothers, Spike Jones, and Cirque du Soleil. This extraordinary acoustic foursome has been described by music critics as "visionary and heretical" and "outrageous yet compulsive", with a "break-all-rules, rock-chamber concert approach to early music."

Red Priest performs Gypsy Baroque Fantasy, a program inspired by the expressivity and virtuosity of forgotten Roma musicians. Featured works are by Handel, Vivaldi, Telemann, Biber, Campra, Byrd, Nicholson, and Mielczewski.

Tickets are $45 for Adults, $40 for Seniors 65+, and $15 for Students, plus applicable fees.
