The Los Angles-based Early Music ensemble, Angeles Consort has emerged as one of the top Baroque chamber groups in Southern California. Specializing in music of the late 16th to 18th century, Angeles Consort brings a fresh and historically informed approach to the repertoire.
Angeles Consort’s members are premier Early Music ensemble artists trained at the Southland’s leading music schools including the USC Thornton School (Janet and Leif), Cal State Northridge and Hartt School (Suzanna) and UC Santa Barbara (Jason). They bring their performing experience from renowned ensembles and festivals including Musica Angelica, Seattle Baroque, Santa Fe Pro Musica, San Francisco Consortium Antiquum, Texas Early Music Project, Camerata Pacifica, Portland Baroque, and Baroque Music Festival Corona Del Mar.
A recent transplant from the Midwest, Angie Solomon completed her Master’s degree at the University of Missouri and went on to become the soprano apprentice at the Kansas City Lyric Opera, where she debuted as Papagena in Die Zauberflöte. Angie won Grand Prize in the prestigious Naftzger Young Artist Award in 2007.
