12 Nights Festival

June 17-28, 2020
The Choir of Trinity Wall Street; Trinity Baroque Orchestra; Julian Wachner, conductor; Attacca Quartet and other guest artists

 

Trinity is debuting a new, annual 12 Nights Festival, this year featuring 16 free early music concerts in 12 days and nights. With a nod to Trinity’s former Twelfth Night Festival and a focus on Trinity’s signature innovative performances of both new and old music, the 12 Nights Festival will alternate between the two each year. The festival kicks off in 2020 with early music including Rameau’s opera Dardanus staged by director James Darrah, concerts of Handel’s Deborah, a concert curated by Jonathan Woody, a complete cycle of the Beethoven String Quartets performed by the Attacca Quartet in celebration of his 250th birthday, and more.
