Davóne Tines and Nola Richardson Headline Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale’s ‘SESSION’ Series

By Logan Martell

On February 16, 2023, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale’s alternative concert series “SESSIONS” will return for its eight year of performances.

PBO Assistant Conductor David Belkovski will be joined by company Creative Partner Davóne Tines, and soprano Nola Richardson for a program of early music and modern works.

Selections include Purcell’s Evening Hymn,” Monteverdi’s “Lasciatemi morire,” Geminiani’s “Cello Sonata in D minor,” as well as music from Tyshawn Sorey’s “Were you there,” Katherine Balch’s “these intervals matter,” and Belkovski’s own “Tombeau for the Artist as a Young Man.”

The program will end with an open rehearsal where the audience can watch a different work take shape on both nights. “SESSIONS” will run on Feb. 16 and 17, held at San Francisco’s ODC Theater. Tickets are currently available for purchase at $25.
