The Whidbey Island Music Festival presents: Spanish Nights with Sherezade Panthaki and Pacific MusicWorks

July 15, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Star soprano Sherezade Panthaki returns to the Whidbey Island Music Festival, singing arias from Handel’s first opera, Almira. Written when Handel was just 19 years old, Almira was a roaring success and enjoyed 20 performances when it opened in Hamburg. Pacific MusicWorks performs the most beautiful, most thrilling arias from this early masterwork. Spanish composer Irribaren’s thrilling cantata “Prosigue acorde Lira” rounds out the program along with instrumental works by Corelli, Boccherini, Soler and Pla.

Please note this is an outdoor concert!

“Panthaki is a new trailblazing type among the new female singers of old music…when she sings it is not simply an aria, it is an event” Hannoversche Allgemeine

Event Cost: $0 – $30
