Spring madrigals in a casual setting

The Southern Connecticut Camerata will present its spring concert, “New Leaves, New Loves,” Sunday, April 27, 5 p.m., at St. Matthew’s Episcopal parish hall, 36 New Canaan Road.

The concert will feature Italian madrigals based on texts from Il Pastor Fido, the 1590 pastoral tragicomedy by Italian poet Giovanni Battista Guarini.    Audience members will sit at round, cloth-covered tables and enjoy wine or sparkling water, as well as light hors d’oeuvres.

Madrigals will be interspersed with several instrumental pieces attributed to Vivaldi, performed with flute and harpsichord. The choir will perform from various locations in the room, providing an “up close” experience for concert-goers. The program includes works by d’India, Monteverdi and Marenzio. At the conclusion of the hour-long program, Prosecco and sweets will be served.

Seating accommodates eight people per table.

General Admission:  $20;  $140 per table of eight.
