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
