Paradise Valley United Methodist Church (PVUMC) announces 2016-2017 Community Concert Series: Music for Everyone.
The first concert will be Friday, September 30, 2016 at 7 pm in the PVUMC sanctuary. Solis Camerata with Bartholomew Faire perform "Songs of the Wandering Minstrel."
Solis Camerata (Choir of the Sun) performs early music with ageless simplicity and beauty. Their repertoire draws from a wide variety of early music styles. Audiences enjoy the alluring elegance of early music’s pure choral timbre through concerts that reveal the historical, aesthetic and philosophical importance of ancient secular and sacred music. Solis Camerata is joined by Bartholomew Faire’s ancient instrumentation, including the ethereal sounds of the lute, harp, gemshorn, doucaine, hurdy-gurdy and bagpipes.
Solis Camerata and Bartholomew Faire celebrate song and dance of the Medieval pilgrimage in this concert. From Chaucer’s Canterbury to Spain's Compostela, come hear music from the Red Book of Montserrat, Mauchaut’s dance music, and court music from the time of King Henry the VIII. In a joyful collaboration of instruments and voices, be entertained by Songs of the Wandering Minstrel.
As with all the PVUMC community concerts, there are no tickets or fees. A free-will offering will be taken at each of the concerts, in support of the series and the participating musicians.
Mark your calendars to attend all the concerts in the series.
