The Élan Ensemble is in-residence at the Hammond-Harwood House and performs music from the 17th–19th centuries in historic venues and museums, bringing modern audiences into the spirit of the musical and social world of past eras.
Welcoming Élan’s Guest Artist:
Praised as “a refined and elegant performer” by the Boston Musical Intelligencer, Dr. Paula Maust performs extensively across North America as a harpsichordist and organist. She is a co-director of both Burning River Baroque and Musica Spira and regularly collaborates with numerous professional orchestras, chamber ensembles, and soloists. Equally committed to performance and scholarship, her research focuses on the reception history of 17th-century female professional musicians and early modern society’s fascination with unconventional women.
