ORONO – Zenith Ensemble will perform at 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 16, in Minsky Recital Hall at the University of Maine.

Led by Grammy-nominated performer and concertmaster Marika Holmqvist, the professional ensemble is comprised of five singers and six instrumentalists from Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts.

Some of the best pieces of the Baroque period’s quintessential composers of vocal music — Johann Sebastian Bach and George Frideric Handel — will be featured, including Bach’s “Jesu meine Freude” and Handel’s “Dixit Dominus.”

Zenith Ensemble was founded on the belief that everyone should have access to extraordinary music, so tickets are pay-what-you-can. The suggested donation is $25. Tickets can be reserved online at https://www.artful.ly/store/events/16996.
