Instruments of the Renaissance: A Family & Children's Concert.
Sunday, May 04, 2014 3:00 PM
Lauda Musicam of Atlanta, conducted by Jody Miller, will perform standard fare from the Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque periods on instruments appropriate for the time period. The debut of a consort of handmade Boaz Berney Renaissance flutes will be the climax of our fifth season. Built into the performance will be demonstrations of the instruments and music forms for people less familiar with historical music. Members will lead a "petting zoo" after the concert for people to see and try instruments and to ask members questions. Lauda Musicam of Atlanta is an instrumental ensemble of recorders, viols, flutes, harpsichord, sackbuts, shawms, harps, crumhorns, cornettos, and percussion. Uncommon Practice, an a cappella vocal ensemble specializing in music before Bach's "common practice" period, will assist.
St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church, 1790 Lavista Road, Atlanta, GA 30329
