BMC Season Guest Concert Series welcomes In Stile Moderno on Oct. 28

BRATTLEBORO — The Brattleboro Music Center's Season Guest Concert Series welcomes In Stile Moderno on Friday, Oct. 28.

The Center says the 7 p.m. concert, titled “Quia Amore Langueo,” will showcase 17th-century Italian settings of Song of Songs texts with the timbres of voice, cornetto, theorbo, and organ - the cornetto and voice intertwining as one in works for two sopranos.

Performers include Agnes Coakley Cox, soprano; Nathaniel Cox, cornetto and theorbo; and Juan A. Mesa, organ. “These passionate and virtuosic works will make for an unforgettable evening,” organizers said in a news release.

In Stile Moderno was founded in Basel, Switzerland, in 2012 by Coakley and Cox.

Named after the “modern style” of music, which emerged in Italy around 1600, the ensemble is dedicated to music of that era and combines fidelity to historical performance practice with a drive to make early music accessible and relevant to modern audiences.

In Stile Moderno has performed in Boston, Vermont, and New York, as well as in concert series in Switzerland, Germany, and France.

Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. They are available on the Brattleboro Music Center website - - or by calling 802-257-4523.
