The music of the courts and countryside of Renaissance Europe will once again fill the air as the Farallon Recorder Quartet plays love songs and consorts on flutes ranging from six inches to six feet long. Described as "the sound one would get if one could turn honey into wood or stand underneath a caramel fountain" by Early Music America, the Farallon Quartet is widely regarded as one of the finest professional recorder ensembles in the country. For this concert featuring pieces ranging from the lively to the sublime, Farallon will be joined by soprano Jennifer Paulino and lutenist John Lenti. Learn More
The 2010-2011 season concludes with Blue Skies, Bluegrass, and Beyond—an innovative program featuring Musae in collaboration with local bluegrass musicians. Bluegrass versions of familiar classic rock songs and Appalachian gospel hymns and folk songs will appear alongside beautiful madrigals, part songs, and contemporary chansons.
Musae celebrates the nature that grows around us with Cornysh's "Ah, Robyn," Lauridsen's "Dirait-on," and Delibes' stunning "Flower Duet" from Lakmé, turns to the sky with Stanford's "Blue Bird" and Arlen's "Over the Rainbow," and looks beyond with the bluegrass hymns "Angel Band," "Swing Low," and others.
