March's guest conductor: Dr. Marianne Pfau
Dr. Pfau teaches Western music history courses at USD, with a specialization in music before 1800. Since 2007, she has directed the concert series Angelus: Sacred Early Music in the USD Founders Chapel. Occasionally, Dr. Pfau also teaches graduate seminars at the Musicological Institute of the University of Hamburg, Germany. Dr. Pfau has published extensively on Hildegard of Bingen, and edits 18th-century music for Baroque Oboe. She leads an active musical life as a baroque oboist and a recorder soloist, performing and recording in the US and in Europe. She often joins American Bach Soloists, Jubilate Baroque Orchestra and California Bach Society in San Francisco, Trinity Consort in Oregon, Ensemble Rebel in New York, with Musica Alta Ripa, L’Arco Baroque Orchestra Hannover, Corona Musica Kassel, Cythara Ensemble Hamburg, Accademia dell ’Arcadia Poznan, and many others. As director of the ensemble Toutes Suites, she has recorded five CDs of newly discovered 18th-century music for Baroque Hautbois Band on the labels GENUIN classic in Leipzig, Virtilla in Hamburg, and for Bayerischer Rundfunk in Nuremberg.
Dr. Pfau has previously been a guest conductor of the SDCRS, and the SDCRS welcomes her back and anticipates another interesting and challenging session of music making with her. She will conduct works by Hans Hassler, Michael Praetorius, William White, and Michael Altenburg.
