CLASSICAL | Rochester Early Music Festival 

Musica Spei's annual Early Music Festival is always a copious sampler of the many treats on the "Bach and before" musical menu, from the intricate to the affecting and the exhilarating. This weekend's festival, the 14th, is no exception: you'll hear vocal ensemble music by Musica Spei itself; the Genesee Valley Children's Chorus led by Amy Cochrane; a new group, Bedlam, performing 16th-century Scottish songs; instrumental ensemble music by Publick Musick; Eastman's Viol Consort led by Christel Thielmann; Eastman Collegium Musicum led by Paul O'Dette; a solo performance by lutenist Christopher Wilke; and cellist Glenna Curran in a Bach suite.

Musica Spei presents the 14th Annual Rochester Early Music Festival on Friday, November 14, at St. Anne Church, 1600 Mt. Hope Avenue. 7:30 p.m. $13-$15.
