Sacramento Baroque Soloists are a new group for me, though I think they have been around Sacramento for a while.
The program was filled out with a concerto by Georg Philipp Telemann and Cantata BWV 54 by Bach. Derek Keller was the soloist in the Bach Cantata where he billed himself as a countertenor, and later in the Coffee Cantata he was a tenor. I didn't hear falsetto from him. For me he sounded more like a haute contra, a French style of high tenor. He sounded fine, just not like a countertenor.
