About the ensemble:
â The Audience Prize winner of the 2012 Early Music America Baroque Performance Competition
â The only American Finalist ensemble at the 2011 York International Early Music Competition
The Sebastians specialize in music of the Baroque and Classical eras and newly commissioned works for period instruments. For the tricentennial of the publication of Antonio Vivaldiâs LâEstro Armonico, the Sebastians commissioned composer Robert Honstein to write a companion suite, which they premiered alongside Vivaldiâs work in December 2011. The suite received its New York premiere on November 20, 2013 at Columbia Universityâs Italian Academy. This past season they presented a series of thematic concerts as artists-in-residence at Emanuel Lutheran Church in Manchester, CT. This season they were named the residence ensemble at All Angelsâ Church in New York City. They have participated in the Carnegie Hall Professional Training Workshop with LâArpeggiata and performed at Music Matters at LaGrua Center in Stonington, CT, Friends of Music at Pequot Library in Southport, CT, Juilliard in Aiken in Aiken, SC., and in the Twelfth Night Festival and Concerts@One at Trinity Wall Street in New York City.
