Carolina Pro Musica: From Rote to Note - music's journey
November 5, 2017 –
Carolina Pro Musica continues GEMS (Gaston Early Music Series) begun last season. The upcoming program presents music from the 9th to the 15th centuries. There will be works by Notker, a 9th century Benedictine monk at St. Gallen (today Switzerland), mystic Hildegard of Bingen, Machaut, a poet/composer and contemporary of Chaucer, Dufay, Landini and instrumental works by anonymous composers. Creativity surged when music could be written down. Hear instruments such as recorder, viol, harp, hurdy gurdy, lots of percussion and voices.
Carolina Pro Musica celebrates 40 years of Early Music for the Southeast. 704-334-3468 or www.carolinapromusica.org
