The countertenor voice came to prominence in the mid-17th century before falling from favor not even a century later. It has since enjoyed a powerful resurgence, with many countertenors now commanding praise on the world’s greatest concert and operatic stages. Andreas Scholl, who possesses one of the most beautiful countertenor voices of his generation, comes to the Board of Officers Room with a program that explores the poetry and artistic expression of the English Renaissance and Baroque at the height of the voice type’s original popularity.
