Sound and the Enjoyment of Sensation: Exploring the Pleasures of Renaissance Music

Sunday, March 4, 2012
12:30 PM–01:30 PM

The Broken consort featuring Brian Kay, with special guests Kevin Shannon & Niccolo Seligmann brings us a dynamic program of Renaissance and Baroque music. They will take you on a musical journey through the pleasures of an earlier time, with the folk songs of Spain and the cantatas of mid 17th century Italy,   

About the Performers

The Broken Consort is an increasingly sought-after ensemble made up of some of the most promising young early music performers on the east coast. These best friends, all trained in early music, set out to bring beauty and nuance of early chamber music to a wider audience through performance and education. We believe that although the musical language of most of our repertoire comes from a far-away time, it’s power and grandeur can be expressed through intelligent programming, vigorous research, and committed performances.
