For the past five years Mr. Priset has also been performing regularly on the theorbo, a lute used in the 17th and 18th centuries. He currently studies early guitars and theorbo with Pat O’Brien in NYC. Mr. Priset has played theorbo and baroque guitar for the Stony Brook Baroque Players (the resident baroque ensemble led by the harpsichordist Arthur Haas) and served as Prof. Haas teaching assistant for a year at Stony Brook. The Baroque Players perform around the New York City and Long Island region. In 2007 the group was invited by Early Music America to perform at the Boston Early Music Festival as part of a scholarship prize.
