The Musicians of the Old Post Road is a chamber ensemble based in the Boston area that specializes in the period instrument performance of dynamic and diverse music from the Baroque to early Romantic eras.  Founded by Artistic Directors Suzanne Stumpf (flute) and Daniel Ryan (cello), the ensemble also includes Sarah Darling (violin & viola), Marcia Cassidy (viola), and Michael Bahmann (harpsichord).

Follow the Star’ is a program showcasing music written for Epiphany and shining a light on the Magi’s journey toward Bethlehem. This festive concert includes selections by Telemann, Geist, and a modern day revival of a cantata by Graupner.  The ensemble is joined for this concert by distinguished vocal soloists: soprano Jessica Petrus, mezzo-soprano Catherine Hedberg, and tenor Jason Wang.

THE EXPERIENCE:

“To attend an Old Post Road concert is to be transported back in time. Picture yourself sitting in the pews of a beautiful old church…with bold, graceful, or spritely music filling the intimate venue. The program that rests in your lap details the rich history of the music you are listening to, and the concert venue you are enjoying. In front of you, the ensemble charms on a variety of period wind, string, and keyboard instruments.”
