SIREN Baroque at Rutgers University

Last night, Thursday April 16th, we performed a wonderful concert to a lovely audience at Rutgers University.  The concert was “Music Written By Women and for Women” – highlighting music by Baroque women composers as well as Vivaldi, who wrote for the girls of the The Ospedale della Pietà, a convent, orphanage and music school for girls.  (the boys were taught to make shoes and the girls were the music super stars!)  It was a true joy to be reunited with two of our SIRENS who have moved to other places; Liv Heym who now lives in France and Kelly Savage who calls San Francisco her home. We miss them desperately but are so grateful that we have these projects that bring them back to us!

We wanted to share the some photos from the night, the program of the concert and a photo tip from Britt how to take the rest of a huge sangria home! 🙂
