Free Concert Canberra Recorder and Early Music Society

By July 13, 2018News

Free Concert: This Sunday 15 July 2018, 4pm – 5pm
Windsong Pavilion, Four Winds Rd, Barragga Bay

The Canberra Recorder and Early Music Society are hosting an early music weekend workshop at Four Winds this coming weekend. Over 35 musicians are gathering to explore music and tunes from the 16th Century – the Renaissance Period. The highly energised and inspirational Barbara Jergen – a celebrated music teacher and performer will lead the weekend. Barbara will be joined by Alexandra Bailliet-Joly, who is also a wonderful recorder player, conductor and educator.

The workshop culminates in a free concert at 4pm this Sunday 15 July, which will showcase the pieces the musicians have explored during the weekend, as well as some smaller ensemble pieces; including a work for eight voices (performed by the The Friday Choir) and eight recorders.

Like the ‘Spring Sing’, which brings together local choirs in September, this is a wonderful example of how different communities come together at Four Winds to participate in and share their passion for music making.

The theme of early music continues for our next Windsong Series Concert on Sunday 19th August 2018 at 1pm during which former Four Winds Festival Artistic Director Genevieve Lacey (recorder) will perform music from the Renaissance Period, along with harpsichord and bassoon – more about that concert in future emails but tickets are selling fast….you can
