Black Tulip is a multinational ensemble featuring Josefien Stoppelenburg, soprano (the Netherlands), Mirja Lorenz, recorders (Germany), Phillip Serna, viols (US), and Joel Spears, lutes and theorbo (US). Interdisciplinary by nature, Black Tulip's innovative outside-of-the-box programming immerses audiences in vivid and dynamic multi-media experiences. Black Tulip often combines dramatic cantatas and songs for solo voice and obbligato instruments with virtuosic instrumental works for recorders, viols, lutes and theorbo alongside history lectures incorporating projected artwork to depict the complex cultural lives of composers and their 17th- and 18th-century audiences.
