Orchestra Of St. Lukes

After the resounding success of last spring’s concert, St. Luke’s Chamber Ensemble returns to Temple Emanu-El. These world-renowned musicians will fill Temple Emanu-El’s historic sanctuary with rapturous sounds of the Baroque.

St. Luke’s Chamber Ensemble will perform Handel’s Water Music Suite. Handel composed the Water Music Suites for King George II, for a royal party on a barge on the Thames River. Though composed in 1717, the piece was not published until after Handel’s death in 1759. While the order of the movements remains unclear, they were later grouped together based on musical similarities, creating three shorter suites.
