Shirley Edith Hunt is a cellist and violist who performs as a soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral player with period-instrument ensembles, modern orchestras, and chamber ensembles of all kinds. Recent engagements include performances with Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, American Bach Soloists, Voices of Music, Berkeley Symphony, Musica Angelica Baroque Orchestra, Bach Collegium San Diego, Portland Baroque Orchestra, Agave Baroque Ensemble, Archetti, Musica Pacifica, Chicago’s Music of the Baroque, and the Los Angeles Master Chorale.

For these performances Ms. Hunt will play a ca. 1720 bass viol crafted by Johann Christian Hoffmann, the court violin maker in Leipzig and a friend of J.S. Bach. The instrument was likely used in original performances of Bach’s cantatas & Passions.

ALL RESERVATIONS ARE WILL-CALL. No tickets will be mailed to you. Please address queries to events@mjt.org. If you wish to be added to our events mailing list, please write "SUBSCRIBE" in the subject header of your e-mail.
