The Baltimore Consort, April 4, 2009 at 8PM, College of New Jersey
"Gut, Wind, and Wire"

The Baltimore Consort will present a program entitled "Gut, Wind, and Wire" on Saturday, April 4, 2009 at 8PM in the Mildred and Ernest E. Mayo Concert Hall in the music building at The College of New Jersey. "Gut, Wind, and Wire" offers an exploration of early music through the lute, viol, flute, cittern, early guitar, rebec, recorder, crumhorn, bandore, and percussion.

Also, they will give a master class on Friday, April 3 at 2PM. This event is free and open to the public. It will involve a lecture and demonstration of early music.

Founded in 1980 to perform the instrumental music of Shakespeare's time, the Baltimore Consort has explored early English, Scottish, and French popular music, focusing on the relationship between folk and art song and dance. Their interest in early music of English/Scottish heritage has also led them to delve into the rich trove of traditional music preserved in North America. In the Spring 2009 they will release a recording, ¡Cancionero! Music of Renaissance Spain. Recordings on the Dorian label have earned them recognition as Top Classical-Crossover Artist of the Year (Billboard), as well as rave reviews elsewhere. Besides touring in the U.S. and abroad, they often perform on such syndicated radio broadcasts as St. Paul Sunday, Performance Today, Harmonia and the CBC's OnStage. They have also enjoyed many teaching residencies at K-12 schools, as well as at the Madison Early Music Festival and other university engagements. "Gut, Wind, and Wire" is the Baltimore Consort's newest release on the Dorian Label.
