The Pensacola Early Music Consort announces an outdoor concert open to all on May 9, at 4:00 p.m. at St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church, 3200 N. 12th Avenue.
The Pensacola Early Music Consort was first established in 1994 with the goal of establishing a supportive environment for people interested in learning and playing recorders and early music instruments. Members of the consort provide music education to a wide range of the Pensacola community ranging from elementary students to senior citizens.
The group uses early musical instruments such as recorders, krummhorns, gemshorns, viola da gambas, vielles, and sackbuts (Renaissance trombones) and a Hammered Dulcimer.
Selections will include pieces from the Renaissance, Celtic music, and selections from Handel's "Water Music". The concert will premier the consort’s new instrument, a 6 1/2 foot Contra Bass Recorder, named "Miles High" in honor of Miles Doolittle, a founding member of the Consort who moved to Detroit last summer.
Cap off your Mothers' Day with a festive hour of music on the lawn. Please bring your lawn chairs or blankets.
