Camerata’s next homeside appearances will take place in November, 2009, but for those of you who simply must have more over the summer, we invite you, on June 26, to the village of Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert, in the Languedoc region of France. As part of a two-day celebration marking the opening of a museum in the magnificent 12th century abbey of Saint Guilhem, Camerata will be retelling the legend of warrior-saint William of Orange in poetry and music of the Middle Ages. This program has previously appeared at the Cloisters museum in New York, where a big piece of Saint Guilhem’s abbey cloister got whisked away one fine day by a certain John D. Rockefeller. We are happy to return to the original geographic source of that great art (one of the most beautiful villages in France, by the way), and to bring the legend with us.
