This new year, we dare you to broaden your horizons and do something you might not normally do—namely, attend the Musicians in Ordinary’s presentation of French Baroque Cantatas and Sonatas. Hallie Fishel and John Edwards make up the duo who pay tribute to early music primarily through voice and lute. One of their featured guests, Irish flutist Emma Zoe Elkinson, is proof that the instrument isn’t just for band geeks. She’s performed with U2, at the Vatican, and plays everything from pop music to traditional Irish pieces. Now that doesn’t sound so bad, does it?
