About Amethyst Baroque
Amethyst Baroque Ensemble, named for the official state gem of Georgia, was formed by Co-Directors Dr. Alexandra Snyder Dunbar (harpsichord) and Jody Miller (recorder). Their offical debut as a duo was sightreading recorder sonatas at a music shop in 2018. The following spring, Adrin Akins (countertenor) and Marcy Jean Brenner (viola da gamba) joined the ensemble as core members for Amethyst's debut concert of Italian Baroque music. Claiming Atlanta and Athens as the ensemble's dual homebases, Amethyst performs regularly in both cities and has appeared on multiple concert series.
