Performers and/or Faculty: 
Seicento Baroque Ensemble, Colorado's premier Baroque choir specializing in the historically-informed performances of 17th and 18th century choral music. Features soloists are: Amanda Balestrieri, soprano; Marjorie Bunday, alto; Rob Tudor, bass; Mimi Mitchell, baroque violin; and Colorado Public Radio's Charley Samson, narrator.

Seicento presents music of Henry Purcell (1659-1695) in an historical fictitious tale about the discovery of the Great Comet, an event eliciting fear of doom and death, and the people's reaction - turning to God, the music of the spheres, and good ol' Bacchus.
