A celebration of Georg Philipp Telemann


Two hundred and fifty years after his passing, we celebrate the music of Georg Philipp Telemann.

In addition to works by our honoree, this program will feature compositions by Farina, von Westhoff, Pisendel, Walter and Bach.

Aisslinn Nosky, violin

Guy Fishman, cello

Priscilla Herreid, oboe

Ian Watson, harpsichord


Priscilla Herreid plays early oboes and recorder with Trinity Baroque Orchestra, The Handel and Haydn Society, The Sebastians, Tempesta di Mare, and Boston Baroque, and has appeared with Portland Baroque, Philharmonia Baroque, Les Arts Florissants, Venice Baroque, Juilliard Baroque, New York Baroque Inc., Wiener Akademie, Musica Angelica, and Mr. Jones & the Engines of Destruction. She can also be seen playing all manner of earlier winds with Piffaro, Hesperus, The Waverly Consort, TENET, Ex Umbris, The Dark Horse Consort, The City Musick, ARTEK, Cançonièr, The Rose Ensemble, and The Bishop's Band.

Priscilla was part of the onstage band for the Shakespeare on Broadway productions of Twelfth Night and Richard III, starring Mark Rylance and Stephen Fry. She is former director of the Early Music Ensemble at Temple University, and is on the faculty of the Madison (WI) Early Music Festival, where she directs recorder and alta capella ensembles. For several years, Priscilla was the soprano at various New York City parishes that celebrate the Latin mass, and still sings occasionally for the mass around NY and CT. Last season, she was featured as guest recorder soloist in Vivaldi's C Major concerto (RV 443) with Portland Baroque Orchestra. Highlights next season include the release of a new recording by Piffaro (Back Before Bach: A Musical Journey), the recording of a score to Douglas Fairbanks' classic silent film Robin Hood with Hesperus, and a chamber performance with harpist Bridget Kibbey.

Priscilla's playing has been called “particularly fine” by the Washington Post, and the New York Times has praised her “soaring recorder, gorgeously played...” Priscilla is a graduate of Temple University and The Juilliard School.
