Nothing like an Earlye Musicke Consort

Sarasota Earlye Musicke Consort to serenade us in the Crocker Church Tuesday April 1 at 7pm

Nothing like an Earlye Musicke Consort to start off the beautiful month of April!

An early musical instrument

This is a viol de gamba!

The Sarasota Earlye Musicke Consort is a group of musicians which have been in existence since 1993. The musicians gather to practice in the Crocker Memorial Church and praise its fine acoustics.

Members of the Consort are seniors who have many years of experience playing all the different sizes of recorders. Also included in the group, is a viol de gamba player.

The Consort has graciously invited us to attend a melodious, costumed thank-you concert for the members of the Historical Society on Tuesday, April 1, at 7pm and hope all can come!

The literature played represents music from the 1300s to music currently being composed for recorder groups. Charlotte Trautwein is the music director and is a retired music professor from North Dakota State University.

Programs presented by the Consort are varied and descriptions of the instruments and commentary about the music played are shared at each performance. This year’s theme is “Exploring 800 years of Music.” The Consort will be wearing Renaissance costumes to enhance the presentation.

Please come to this thank-you concert for the members of the Historical Society on Tuesday, April 1, at 7pm. Members free; $5 donation requested of guests.
