The Howard Mayer Brown Memorial Concert. At the turn of the 17th century, the noble courts and elite salons of Ferrara, Florence, Rome, and Venice were hotbeds of musical patronage. We'll recreate the lavish ensembles employed at these Italian centers to perform the innovative music of Luzzaschi, Peri, Monteverdi, Wert, and da Gagliano. This concert is presented in honor of EMA's 25th Anniversary.
