Red Priest makes it new 

Britain’s Red Priest has redefined the art of early music performance, combining the fruits of deep historical knowledge with a high intensity performing style. Gramophone Magazine called the group “the U.K.’s most dynamic, theatrical and outrageously different Baroque ensemble.”

NUVO’s Tom Aldridge has written about the group: “Not being shackled by music scores or stands (yes, folks, it’s all memorized) or limited imaginations, they walk while they play — while they talk. It’s show-biz, it’s arrangements, it’s entertainment, it’s rock city without the decibels — it’s a hoot. But the Red Priest deliver much more than ordinary shtick: They are top-flight musicians and students of the Baroque era who know exactly what the hell they’re doing.”

Red Priest will perform as part of the Indianapolis Early Music Festival July 26-27 at the Indiana History Center auditorium, 450 W. Ohio St., at 7:30 p.m. Tickets ($22) are liable to sell quickly for this event, so online ordering is recommended at or by phoning 317-577-9731. For more on Red Priest:
