THIS WEEK’S FEATURED COMPOSER IS…
Henry Lebedinsky has performed on historical keyboards with Seattle Opera, Seattle Baroque Orchestra, the Seattle Symphony, the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, the Charlotte Symphony, Seraphic Fire, Sonoma Bach, and the Cantata Collective, among others. He is the co-Artistic Director of Seattle’s Pacific MusicWorks, and the founder and director of PMW’s Underground concert series, dedicated to educating and entertaining new audiences about the world of Baroque and Classical music in unconventional, informal, and fun venues. Mr. Lebedinsky is also the co-director of the San Francisco Bay Area-based Agave Baroque, with which he has recently released two albums with countertenor Reginald L. Mobley on the VGo Recordings label. He and Mr. Mobley have spent the past decade introducing listeners near and far to music by Black composers from the past 250 years, including recent appearances at the Musée d’Orsay in Paris and Festival Printemps Musical des Alizés in Morocco. He has given lectures and led master classes on 17th and 18th century repertoire and performance practice at the University of Edinburgh’s Dashkova Centre for Russian Studies, Bowdoin College, and UNC School of the Arts, among others, and is a former recording critic at Fanfare Magazine. An active composer and poet, his sacred music for choir and organ is published by Paraclete Press, Carus-Verlag Stuttgart, and CanticaNOVA. A church musician for the past 26 years, he currently serves as Director of Music at Seattle’s historic Christ Episcopal Church and sits on the Liturgy and Arts Commission for the Episcopal Diocese of Olympia.
