    Name: Niccolo Seligmann, early folk instrumentalist
    Date: February 19, 2020
    Time: 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM EST
    Event Description:
    When Niccolo Seligmann comes across an obscure folk instrument he’s never seen before, he can’t help but pick it up and play! Having earned a degree in viola da gamba performance from Peabody Conservatory, he plays over 20 acoustic instruments, including medieval fiddle, and is apprenticed to master luthier Ken Koons. Seligmann is a member of various medieval, traditional, and early music ensembles, including the Jefferson Baroque Orchestra, with whom he is premiering his original new-baroque opera, Minerva, based on Handel’s arias. He has toured North America and Europe, performing in venues that range from the Kennedy Center to the inside of a 2,000-year-old California redwood tree. His work unites historical and experimental music, utilizing both acoustic and electronic instruments to create a completely unique listening experience.
