Guerrilla performing ensemble Early Music Underground takes the stage at Naked City Brewery this Tuesday January 12 with their program “(Baroque) Band of Brothers.” Focusing on the historic rivalries of early music, the program will feature young performers and brothers Romaric & Corentin Pokorny with harpsichordist Henry Lebedinsky.
Viola faces off against violin, C.P.E. takes on J.S. Bach, and lesser-known siblings (Daniel Purcell, anyone?) finally get their fifteen minutes of fame against their more well-known compositional brothers. The evening will be conducted in the vein of Opera on Tap or a Groupmuse get-together, with a low-key and humorous program and plenty of opportunities to toast your favorite performer with a Naked City brew. Tickets are $20 and include a complimentary drink–buy yours here.
Early Music Underground (whose tagline, “Making Bach Rock in the Pacific Northwest,” just about says it all) seeks “to take Early Music out of the museum and put it where we think it belongs, and that’s where you are.” They perform in breweries and wineries around the city, make living room appearances through Groupmuse, and always have creative programming to round out their Baroque-focused repertoire. Wisely, they often pair their music with booze for a more laid-back vibe; check out their Tasting Notes sample programs for the ultimate merlot-and-harpsichord or scotch-and-sonata pairing.
