Consortium Carissimi

Consortium Carissimi was conceived of by Garrick Comeaux, Artistic Director, in 1996 while living in Rome, Italy. He founded Consortium Carissimi in 2007 as an official nonprofit, 501 (c)(3). This Minnesota-based performing ensemble has the mission of uncovering and bringing to 21st century audiences the long-forgotten Italian baroque music of the 16th and 17th centuries. It does so through live concerts, master classes, recordings and publications.

 

Consortium Carissimi bears the name of the famous composer whose music was known for its simple, fresh approach to text, melody and accompaniment. Much of the music that Consortium Carissimi performs has not been heard since it was first created in the 16th or 17th century—and it is only through the transcriptions of these original documents that this music may be heard today. The unique strength that Consortium Carissimi possesses is that it has in its library over 200 transcriptions of these long-forgotten works.

Artaria String Quartet

Atonement Lutheran Church

St. Cloud, MN

The Artaria String Quartet is embarking on its fourth decade of string quartet playing and teaching. To get here we have learned to trust each other in a deep and profound way. A conversation among equals, each voice in Artaria is heard and respected and the remarkable music we are privileged to study and perform guides us through the greatest thoughts and emotions humanity can express. Our greatest joy as curators of this great medium of string playing has been to see students in our coaching programs grow into the awareness that they are part of something greater than themselves. Our next challenge is presenting the cycle of string quartets of Beethoven. We feel honored to have this opportunity and are delighted to share our love of chamber music with the people of Minnesota and beyond...
