The Early Music Concert,  “Voce e instrumenti: Renaissance music for instrumental consorts and arias from Baroque Europe” will be performed by PBA's Early Music Ensemble at 7:30 p.m. April 30 in the DeSantis Family Chapel.

The instrumental music will feature our Renaissance recorder consort playing short selections by Victoria, Susato, and Guami; and our brand new viola da gamba consort playing music by Holborne and Mico as well as accompanying several vocal works. We will also present harpsichord solos by William Byrd.
The program will also feature a number of PBA’s vocal majors and vocal faculty singing baroque arias by Handel, Bach, and Cavalieri. All have been working on baroque period-style in their presentations, so it’s a good learning experience for them.

Singers include: Dean of PBA's School of Music and Fine Arts Dr. Llloyd Mims, Dr. Suzanne Galer, Brooke Wahlstrom, Anna Vera, Judith Destiné, and Parker Trefz.

The concert is directed by Michael O’Connor.

The purpose of the Early Music Ensemble is to offer students an opportunity to learn and perform music composed before 1750. This involves learning instruments of that time and singing in a historically-informed manner.
