In Mulieribus celebrates the 400th anniversary of the birth of Venetian composer Barbara Strozzi with old music and new. Long ignored by the history books, Strozzi will be honored with a captivating program of her chamber cantatas, laments and motets, performed by IM with lutenist John Lenti and cellist Adaiha Macadam-Somer – plus, the world premiere of Stacey Philipps’ new work, “Sospira, respira” on lyrics once set, and perhaps even written, by Strozzi herself. Pre-concert talks are presented by singer/scholar Hannah Penn.
