Neo-Baroque orchestra, KONTRAPUNKTUS, will be making its Culver City debut at Seventh-Day Adventist Church on Saturday, March 31 beginning at 8:00 pm. The church is located at 11828 West Washington Blvd, in Culver City.
KONTRAPUNKTUS will be performing a 90-minute concert featuring a rare and dynamic classical repertoire commemorating influential Baroque composers Johann Sebastian Bach and Arcangelo Corelli, while also introducing new Baroque music from a young composer named Mark Moya. The program, entitled Mentors, Pupils & Scions, consists of music from legendary Baroque composers and performed by a fresh array of talent who hail from the prestigious Colburn School.
KONTRAPUNKTUS is a classical neo-Baroque orchestra led by conductor and Artistic Director, Edward Hong. Patrons are invited to join the artists for a reception after the concert.
Kontrapunktus (Latin for “Counterpoint”) is a young and ethnically diverse group of musicians who have come together from all corners of the globe to perform for one common cause, which is to “mend divisions through the power and grace of classical music.” Kontrapunktus aims to be more than just a chamber orchestra. United in our artistic cause, Kontrapunktus seeks to reimagine classical music so as to enthrall a new generation of audiences.
Admission is open to the public and parking is free.
This performance is made possible in part by a Culver City Performing Arts Grant with support from Sony Pictures Entertainment.
