The first of six concerts in the 2018 Salish Sea Early Music Festival will feature Annalisa Pappano, one of the world’s foremost players of treble viol, when the festival returns to Vashon at noon, Tuesday, Jan. 23, at Bethel Church.

Pappano, who also plays the pardessus de viole, lirone and viola da gamba, will join Michael Freimuth from Kiel Germany, one of Europe’s most active performers on baroque guitar and theorbo, along with Renaissance and Baroque flutist and festival artistic director Jeffrey Cohan. The program will include works by Buonamente, Sweelinck, Heudelinne, Lully, De Visee and Cheron.

Admission is by suggested donation of $15, $20 or $25, and those 18 and under are free.
