KU Instrumental Collegium Musicum presents fall concert

Monday, October 3, 2011

LAWRENCE-The University of Kansas Instrumental Collegium Musicum will present its fall concert on Sunday, October 16, 2011, at 7:30 PM in Swarthout Recital Hall in Murphy Hall.

The ensemble performs on copies of instruments used during the Renaissance and Baroque periods, striving to produce effects and sounds like those heard during past centuries. Directed by Professor Paul Laird, the group includes fourteen undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty members who play recorders, members of the violin family, viola da gamba, harpsichord, and sackbut (an early trombone). The concert will also feature two vocal soloists. Highlights of the program will include works by Telemann, Marini, Hingeston, Dowland, and Handel.

This concert is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the KU School of Music at 785-864-3436. www.music.ku.edu
