Save the Dates:
September 14, 2023 - Aperi Animam performs a musical journey of the English Renaissance, weaving together a selection of well-known and not so well-known pieces, exploring the themes of Passion, Peace, and Play, offering a rich tapestry of emotions and musical styles. The approximate program length is 45 minutes.
January 18, 2024 - The New Milwaukee Consort explores the ways that music was part of home life in the 1600s, serving both as a pastime and as a way of measuring, marking, and celebrating the experience of time itself. You will hear music from published collections of songs for voice, lute, and continuo, along with music from handwritten manuscripts documenting the musical learning and collecting of amateur and professional singers and players. Featured pieces will include English lute music and songs compiled for or by musicians Jane Pickeringe and Elizabeth Davenant, and devotional songs composed by German noblewoman Amalia Catharina von Erbach.
