The Academy of Ancient Music!

Mom and I went to a performance of theirs tonight up on campus. It was exquisite... sublime... glorious! And one of the violinists had on the most scrumptious dress to boot - sleeveless, green, shimmery. *sighs*

Here's what the UMass schedule website said:

Journey through time, and across the ocean, with one of the world's foremost period-instrument orchestras as it shines in a program that includes the music of Bach, Telemann and Handel. Brimming with enthusiasm, energy and dynamic expression, the esteemed Academy of Ancient Music performs with exquisite tonal quality and extreme virtuosity. Under the direction of harpsichord soloist Richard Egarr, the ensemble has been described as "still very much at the vanguard of the period-style movement it launched in concerts and recordings over 30 ears ago."

There's a photo of them as well: but alas, she's not wearing the green dress.
