CMA HONORS BIMBETTA!

 

BIMBETTA is a five-woman ensemble that brings aspects of feminism, popular culture, and Baroque music into a unified concept expressed through theatrical performance. The group is dedicated to performing early music with original instruments and techniques, combined with 20th century interpretations and imagery.

Acclaimed for their superb musicianship and refreshing, irreverent theatricality, Bimbetta creates vivid performances of music from the early Baroque. Through period instruments and vocal styles, Bimbetta uses the heat and humor of American popular culture to bring the passions of 17th-century music straight into the 20th century. The ensemble has been featured in concert series, universities, nightclubs and alternative rock venues, and at major festivals in the United States and Europe.
