Pegasus Early Music's first full concert of 2015 — the organization presented a Pegasus Rising concert last week — will take audiences on a string band tour of the 17th century. "On the Road" will feature music and styles from Germany, Austria, Italy, France and England. Of special interest is Biber's Sonata for two viola d'amores (violas of love) — a stringed instrument used chiefly in the baroque period. Musicians Paul Miller and Dan Elyar will be featured on the instruments. Also on this road trip will be violinists Julie Andrijeski (pictured) and Boel Gidholm; cellist David Morris; Tracy Mortimor on the violone; and Deborah Fox and Daniel Swenberg playing theorbos and guitars.
"On the Road" will be performed on Sunday, February 22, at Downtown United Presbyterian Church, 121 North Fitzhugh Street. 4 p.m. with a pre-concert talk at 3:15 p.m. $10-$25. 703-3990; pegasusearlymusic.org.
