One of New York's preeminent vocal ensembles, TENET, presents songs and instrumental music by composers contemporary to the artists featured in the exhibition, The Renaissance Portrait from Donatello to Bellini. The concert will present various combinations of voices with fifteenth-century instruments. The repertoire might be called "Songs after supper" (in the words of the late Howard Mayer Brown): lyric poetry on themes of love, desire, and more, set to wonderfully expressive music, for the enjoyment of listeners and performers alike.
Venue Description: Sun.-Thurs., 10am-5:30pm; Fri.-Sat., 10am-9pm. Recommended admission: $25.
