Upcoming Cappella Romana concert with the Portland Baroque Orchestra gets a wonderful feature in Portland Monthly, and highlights conductor Monica Huggett and Catherine van der Salm.
“There was a moment during soprano Catherine van der Salm’s early 2011 performance of Bach’s The St. John Passion that was so beautiful, she started to choke up. The performance was a two-pronged collaborative experiment between Portland Baroque Orchestra and Cappella Romana, the internationally renowned vocal ensemble with which van der Salm sings.
“Baroque music might not seem the richest soil for collaboration. The composers are long dead, the conductors call the shots, and the performers simply play their parts, right? Not when Portland’s most skilled period ensembles come together…” — Portland Monthly
