The 18th Festival of Early Music will open at the Wielki Theater in Warsaw Nov. 8, with two concerts featuring instrumental Italian and English music from the late Renaissance and early Baroque, in addition to early chants from Poland, Armenia, Georgia, and Greece.

Warsaw ensemble Cantor Anticus, conducted by Marcin Zalewski, will perform the first concert entitled The Viol-Dance and Meditation. The musicians will play different kinds of the viola da gamba (also known as the viol), an instrument that stands out with the unique and beautiful sound of gut strings.

The second concert, Early Chants of Eastern Christians, will be performed by the Kairos men's vocal ensemble conducted by Borys Somerschaf. As one of few men's ensembles in Poland, Kairos perform Eastern Orthodox chants, including excerpts from Armenian, Georgian and Greek liturgies.

The Festival of Early Music in Warsaw has been held annually since 1991 on Saturdays and Sundays in November and December. The festival venues include the Royal Castle and other historic buildings in Warsaw. This year's festival ends Dec. 7.

Nov. 8, 7:30 p.m., Wielki Theater-National Opera, 1 Teatralny Sq.
