*Con Gioia Early Music Ensemble, based in Claremont, California, was
founded by Harpsichordist and fortepianist Preethi de Silva (Professor of
Music at Scripps College) and presents performances by some of the best
performers of early music in the United States. Following its debut in
1982, the ensemble has performed concerts at locations throughout Southern
California. In 2001 and 2002, Con Gioia proudly presented performances of
all fifteen concertos for one to four harpsichords with winds and strings
by J. S. Bach. The ensemble recently completed a recording of four of
these concertos, which will be released later this year.
