Albano Berberi was born in Albania in 1990, and first began his violin studies in Greece at age five. He then moved to the United States, where he developed a passionate interest in Baroque music. In 2017, he graduated with an Artist Diploma in harpsichord from the Longy School of Music of Bard College. Currently, Albano performs on violin and harpsichord in the US and Canada. He has composed several original works in the Baroque style, several of which have been performed by groups such as Harvard Baroque and the Rare Byrds Ensemble. For the Salt Spring concert Albano will be playing a keyed lyre by Stephen Sorli.
