Live Music in the Library: The English Renaissance

by Susan Hanzelka Mar 27, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Freeland Library
5495 Harbor Ave., Freeland,
Mar 27 , 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Shelia Weidendorf on harpsichord, and soprano Melanie Lowery perform works from the English Renaissance. 

The elegant and refined sound of the Harpsichord and Virginal were highly esteemed in the court of Elizabeth the First, Queen of England 1558–1603.

The plucked (like a lute) rather than struck (like a piano) sonority gives these instruments a charming intimacy ideal for chamber music listening.

In this concert, works from the English Renaissance composers Byrd, Dowland, Morley and Gibbons are performed by Shelia Weidendorf on Harpsichord and soprano Melanie Lowey.

The program includes a short talk that sets the musical and historical context for the performance selections.

Seating is very limited, please reserve your seat in person at the door up to one hour before the concert.

There are no online or phone reservations.
