No one knows the 17th and 18th centuries quite like Monica Huggett. This London-born, Portland-based violinist has devoted her entire life to the Baroque era by performing, educating, establishing festivals, and founding orchestras all over the world dedicated to the music of that time—a passion that’s included expertly leading the Portland Baroque Orchestra for the past two decades. Tonight through Sunday, Huggett and the band wrap up their 2016/2017 season by exploring the sonic world of Antonio Vivaldi and his contemporaries, with a set list chock full of showpieces for the cello, violin, lute, and the always kickass bassoon. Each brilliant composition will be performed on period instruments for that old-school sound. Heads up: The final concert on Sunday takes place in Kaul Auditorium at Reed College, one of the finest venues for chamber music in town. BRIAN HORAY
