The Guild's Annual Early Music Event - The Grounds for Sculpture.
The Guild for Early Music will be featured in the 7th Annual Early Music Festival at the Grounds fro Sculpture on Sunday, October 16, 2011, from Noon to 5:30 PM. This year's theme is "Light and Dark," and member ensembles will perform Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque concerts throughout the afternoon in the SJCA building.

Two vocal ensembles and a "loud band" will perform outdoors in the park (weather permitting) , as well as in the main venue.

Free sculpture tours inspired by this year's festival theme "Light and Dark."

We finish with a "petting zoo" of instruments played during the festival: visitors can try out the some the instruments. This year we expect viola da gamba, baroque cello, harpsichord, sackbut, harp, vielle, dulcian, baroque bassoon, kortholt, psaltery, and recorders of many sizes.
