CUSO presents an evening of “Baroque Brilliance” with stellar works by three giants of the era. Handel’s Concerto Grosso from “Alexander’s Feast” and Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 1 feature dazzling solos by outstanding CUSO principals. Zachary Carrettin, a Baroque specialist and Music Director of the Boulder Bach Festival, returns to Champaign as violin soloist in Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. Hearing and seeing this beloved music in live performance will be a special pleasure for all!
