Amy Domingues Goes Baroque March 2 at Grace and St. Peter’s Church
Indie-rock fans of a certain generation might recognize the name Amy Domingues. Yes, the longtime Washington, D.C./Northern Virginia cellist was one half of the dreamy chamber pop duo Garland of Hours and the bombastic trio Telegraph Melts with Bob Massey, an erstwhile City Paper contributor, but she’s also been the go-to cellist for regional rock and pop bands. She’s applied her string skills to Dead Meadow’s Howls From the Hills, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists’ The Tyranny of Distance, Jenny Toomey’s Antidote, Fugazi’s The Argument, and many, many more.
And now she’s a graduate student studying Renaissance and Baroque music and the viola da gamba at the Peabody Institute, and Wednesday, March 2, she performs her first recital at Grace and St. Peter’s Church at 7:15 p.m.. Domingues, joined by Jessica Powell and Tina Chancey (viola da gamba) and Qin Ying Tan (harpsichord), plays works for viola da gamba including George Philipp Telemann’s Sonata in D Major TWV 40:1, Johann Sebastian Bach’s Sonata in G Major BWV 1027 for gamba and harpsichord, and Marin Marais’ Tombeau de M. Meliton.
