Concerto Köln, a Baroque chamber ensemble from Cologne, will perform works from its repertoire on a tour across North America with financial assistance from the Goethe-Institut. On February 29, 2020, the ensemble will give a concert at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC.

Tickets are free, but RSVP is required.
RSVP Concerto Köln: Concertmasters Mayumi Hirasaki, Evgeny Sviridov and Shunske Sato together with the Artistic Director, Alexander Scherf, assume the leading roles within the self-governed orchestra. With their choice of projects, the musicians manage to prove time and again that artistic standards and popular success are by no means a contradiction in terms.

Concerto Köln also interprets well-known repertoire in such a refreshing and "remarkable" way (Die Zeit), as if heard for the first time. The ensemble's discography includes more than seventy-five recordings, many of which have been distinguished with awards.
