February 4, 2023 - Triangle, NC:


“The hippest musicians on period instruments”

Escape into the dynamic soundscape of the North Carolina HIP Music Festival. The Mallarmé Chamber Players hosts the HIP (Historically Informed Performance) Festival to showcase Renaissance, Baroque and Classical era music performed on period instruments with historical performance practices.

While shows including Bridgerton and The Great have inspired an interest in music from the past, festival attendees can hear historic music faithfully brought to life by early musician experts from North Carolina and beyond. HIP Festival will showcase over 60 local musicians from eight different organizations in 17 events.

The festival will run from February 4 through March 5, 2023, at various venues in Chapel Hill, Durham, Cary and Raleigh. A full schedule of events are listed at hipmusicfestival.org.

Purchase the HIPSTER pass for $100 to gain admission to all events. The HIPSTER pass is a 60% discount from paying for all individual events. Individual event tickets are available at hipmusicfestival.org.

Because of COVID, the last festival was in February 2020. This large-scale collaboration is managed by Mallarmé while each ensemble is responsible for its own artistic and fiscal management.

DON’T MISS THESE EXCITING PERFORMANCES:

  • Biber Bowl Revisted (in remembrance of the performance of all 16 Mystery Sonatas in 2016) concert to be performed in Durham and Raleigh highlighting the Music of H.I.F Biber through his various collections of music for strings and trumpet.
  • Forgotten Clefs presents Flourish Hoboys! Wind Music from Renaissance England by exploring musical gems from the Tudor court and common street festivities
  • A lecture/concert about the Black Fiddlers of Monticello presented by Early Music Access Project’s David McCormick, violinist
  • All Six of the J.S. Sonatas and Partitas performed by Nicholas DiEugenio with projected images of Nick’s artwork in Inspired by Bach.
  • Two Baroque Dance workshops presented by Paige Whitley-Bauguess

AND SO MUCH MORE! See the sidebar for the full festival list, and check the CVNC homepage for weekly festival updates.

WHAT IS HIP?

North Carolina is fortunate to be home to a high concentration of musicians and early music authorities who perform on period instruments. The North Carolina HIP Music Festival was born in 2013 after several years of successful Historical Bach concerts which included violist Suzanne Rousso (Mallarmé), cellists Brent Wissick (UNC Chapel Hill Department of Music), Stephanie Vial (The Vivaldi Project) and Barbara Krumdieck (Ensemble Vermillian), and  harpsichordists Elaine Funaro (Aliénor) and Beverly Biggs (Baroque & Beyond).

Between the 2013 and 2014 NC HIP Music Festivals, the offering of high-quality early music concerts doubled, including performances by prominent international groups such as the Hilliard Ensemble and the English Concert. Although a very much grassroots effort, the original group has broadened to include the Duke Bach Cantata Series, Raleigh Camerata, El Fuego, The Vivaldi Project, Duke Arts, Baroque & Beyond, as well as the Duke University and UNC Chapel Hill Music Departments.
