 Christopher Morrongiello (lute, baroque guitar) a former British Marshall Scholar, is a graduate of the Mannes College of Music, the Royal College of Music, and the University of Oxford, where he earned a Ph.D. in musicology. As a recitalist, Christopher has performed to critical acclaim throughout Europe and the United States. In 1993 he was a prizewinner in the BBC Radio Two Young Musician of the Year Competition and in 1996 awarded a Marco Fodella Foundation Scholarship for research in Milan, Italy. In 2006, the Lute Society of America conferred upon him its first Patrick O’Brien LSA Seminar Lectureship. Heralded as an innovative music director and creator of large-scale dramatic works, Christopher has a gift for bringing music of the Renaissance and Baroque to life in its literary and social context. His musical portrait of the Elizabethan muse and songstress Penelope Devereux, created for soprano Emily Van Evera ( My Lady Rich, Avie Records 0045), has been described by Renaissance Magazine as “a presentation of unusual quality and beauty� and by the NY Times as “an inspired idea… a vivid and touching portrait.�

It could be said that Christopher Morrongiello plays retro music, if you consider the 16th and 17th century retro. Morrongiello, who performs at Music of the Spheres on Saturday, August 9, is an expert at the lute, a delicate stringed instrument often associated with the Renaissance.
His concert at the Lick Observatory celebrates the 400th anniversary of Galileo Galilei's first telescope demonstration. Morrongiello will play works by the Galilei family and their musical contemporaries. Many people may not know that the father of modern astronomy was a talented lutenist.
