PBO is back! Violin virtuoso Augusta McKay Lodge makes her Philharmonia debut as leader when she joins the Philharmonia Baroque Chamber Players at Herbst Theatre in San Francisco, marking PBO’s first live performances in 16 months and the first in this venerable concert hall since the pandemic began. As a historically informed violinist based in Paris, McKay Lodge performs regularly as a soloist and concertmaster, appearing on the world's most important stages including Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, Concertgebouw and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. A graduate of Juilliard's Historical Performance program as a Kovner Fellow, McKay Lodge first worked with PBO in a side-by-side partnership with the conservatory's premiere ensemble Juilliard415. She will lead a gorgeous and intriguing program of concertos by Handel, Vivaldi and Valentini and Telemann's "Bizarre" orchestral suite. Don’t miss this dynamic musical event — we’re bringing Baroque back...together!
