Sacred Monsters

$15 All Seats

The Hedgelawn Classical Series presents the Renaissance/Baroque duo Sacred Monsters.  

Sacred Monsters is a collaboration between soprano Kyle Leigh Carney and lutenist Cameron Welke dedicated to connecting the stories of the Renaissance and Baroque song repertoire with the lived experiences of audiences today. The ensemble's name is derived from the eighteenth-century term "monstre sacré," used by the French to describe those larger-than-life performers whose eccentricities fueled their performing lives and kept their audiences engaged in their work. Sacred Monsters take inspiration from the duality inherent in their name and aim to bring out both the sacred and the monstrous within Renaissance and Baroque music, inviting their audiences to enter with them into the sublime and grotesque world of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century music.

Founded in 2019, Sacred Monsters has enjoyed performances in a wide variety of venues, including Old Ship Church (Hingham, MA), Kennett Flash (Kennett Square, PA), The Walters Art Museum (Baltimore, MD) and the Piazza Pio II (Pienza, IT). They recently completed their first international tour through the Tuscan and Umbrian regions of Italy. They were recently named an Honors Ensemble by the Peabody Conservatory’s department of chamber music, making them the second early music ensemble to win this prestigious title. This year, they look forward to serving as artists-in-residence at the Enoch Pratt Free Libraries through the Peabody at the Library series, as well as producing Handel’s opera Alcina at The Baltimore Theater Project in May 2020.
