Ensemble Audax is excited to present an evening of pieces from the Italian and German Baroque for ensembles both small and large.

This full band will perform a lovely and intimate Handel Trio Sonata (B minor, HWV 386b) accompanied by two rousing and humorous Vivaldi Chamber Concerti (D minor, RV 96; G minor, RV 106)
