The Ensemble Galilei is set for Old Cabell Hall at The University of Virginia on Friday, February 9. Located on the south end of UVA's historic lawn, this event is supported by the Weber & Arts Council. Founded in 1990, Ensemble Galilei is an ensemble of players from both classical and Celtic backgrounds, playing Irish and Scottish airs and dance tunes, early and medieval music, and original compositions. The Ensemble takes their name and inspiration from the life of composer Vincenzo Galilei, whose influence, some four hundred years ago, helped restore a vital element of passion to the music of the day.
