Per Sonatori, Regina's baroque orchestra, 2014-2015 Season Launch

Tue., Nov. 18, 2014 12:00 p.m. - Tue., Nov. 18, 2014 1:00 p.m.

Location: Crush Area-Dr. William Riddell Centre-University of Regina

The Department is Music is excited to be partnering with Personatori, Regina's baroque orchestra by presenting their 2014-2015 Season Launch. Come out and experience baroque music played on period instruments. Flute players use wooden flutes and recorders, string players use shorter bows, and harpsichord was used in place of piano. These instruments had a softer and mellower sound than what we hear on modern instruments. Players will be in period dress, and you will have the opportunity to conduct the band!

Free Admission; Bring your lunch

Per Sonatori is excited to bring you these sounds in their following season:

The first concert will reflect the Twelve Days of Christmas. This will be done by combining Renaissance and Baroque Music with dances choreographed by Dr. Ann Kipling Brown and Misty Wensel, with a pre-concert presentation with both Dr. Barbara Reul and Dr. Ann Kipling Brown at 2:45 PM.
Sunday, December 7th at 3:30 PM at Knox-Metropolitan United Church

The Language of Love brings us an early Italian concert with Madeleine Owen direct from Montreal. Her Theorbo playing is exceptional and is something we rarely see in the prairies.

Our final concert, Now Performing with Universal Applause, will present an all English concert featuring ‘The Fairies’ by JC Smith. This opera was the focus of Dr. Pauline Minevich’s doctoral thesis and we are excited to have her helping with this program. Her pre-concert chat will be at 7:15 PM.
