The 2020-21 season of American Classical Orchestra, NYC’s foremost period instrument orchestra, is opening on Nov. 17 with Chaconne, a virtual program in two parts with chamber music performances and interviews showcasing the musical genre of the chaconne in 17th and 18th century music. Captured at the beautiful Neo-Gothic Harlem Parish, known for its remarkable fan vaulting and acoustics for this music, it features Mexican mezzo-soprano Guadalupe Peraza, violinists Karen Dekker and Chloe Fedor, gambist Arnie Tanimoto, theorbo player Charles Weaver, and ACO’s Artistic Director and Founder Thomas Crawford on harpsichord.

The program’s first part will be available online on Nov. 17, starting at 7:30 PM EST, and the second part will be available on Nov. 20.
