ACRONYM Ensemble | What Hals Heard: The Musical World of 17th Century Dutch Society

Baroque string ensemble ACRONYM is dedicated to giving modern premieres of the wild instrumental music of the seventeenth century. Playing with “...consummate style, grace, and unity of spirit” (The New York Times), the group formed in 2012. For this performance, conceived specifically for the exhibition Frans Hals Portraits: A Family Reunion, ACRONYM has assembled music with which the artist, and his subjects the Van Campen Family, would have been familiar. Featured composers include Samuel Capricornus, Johann Christoph Pezel, Gionvanni Valentini, and others. This performance will take place in the Great Gallery. Thursday evening hours are supported in part by Huntington Private Client Group.
