Lemos, in his third performance in the series, has received critical acclaim at venues throughout North America and Europe, including Carnegie Hall, London’s Barbican Hall and Paris’ Thèatre de Champs Elysèe. His recorded works include a production of Lully’s Psyche, which was released on the German label CPO and nominated for a 2009 Grammy Award. The Boston Globe has lauded him as singing “with a big, colorful, sexy tone and almost recklessly brilliant coloratura.”

Harpsichordist Vinikour studied music in Paris on a Fulbright scholarship. A concerto soloist with a repertoire ranging from Bach to Poulenc to Nyman, he has performed with ensembles worldwide, including the Moscow Chamber Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra and Philharmonic of Radio France. His awards include first prize in the International Harpsichord Competitions of Warsaw and the Prague Spring Festival.

Fox plays the theorbo (an Italian string instrument), Baroque guitar and lute. The founder of Pegasus Early Music in Rochester, NY, she is also artistic director of NYS Baroque in Ithaca and Syracuse. She has performed at festivals and with ensembles including the Carmel Bach Festival, Glimmerglass Opera and Spoleto Festival. She also has worked with the Pinchgut Opera in Sydney, Australia.
