The Viola da Gamba Player by Bernardo Strozzi. Thought to be a portrait of Barbara Strozzi

She was a most extraordinary woman: the most prolific composer in mid-17th century Venice; a much-praised poet and singer; a property owner when most women were not. On Friday, September 23, Pegasus Early Music joins producer and host Julia Figueras to showcase Strozzi's unique and passionate voice.

Tune in at 1 PM for an hour of sacred, secular, vocal and instrumental music by Strozzi and her Venetian contemporaries, including Cavalli, Castello, and others.

A Strong Memorial baby and Greece Arcadia grad, Julia Figueras is the Music Director and mid-day host for WXXI-FM. She is also the producer and host for the award-winning monthly interview/performance show, Backstage Pass.
