ROCKY MOUNTAIN CONSORT
Perspectives of Antiquity
What’s new? What’s old? It all depends…. At one time, all Early Music was “contemporary music,” and within the Baroque universe, some earlier composers influenced those who came after them. Rocky Mountain Consort delights our ears and our imaginations, inviting us to discover the wonderful energy and evolution of the unfolding Early Music project. It’s an exploration of Perspectives of Antiquity, and a reminder that beautiful music continues to charm us, no matter how old it may be.

COLORADO CHAMBER PLAYERS
Colorado Chamber Players return to Happy Hour with a program featuring music played on the beguiling viola d’amore. The concert is preceded by a wonderful, short pre-concert lecture to introduce you to this amazing instrument. The composers’ lives span from the sixteenth to nineteenth century and demonstrate the enduring power of this instrument to evoke deep human resonance. Sarah Biber and Paul Primus bring wonderful artistry for the continuo, and Sarah’s solo by Tobias Hume is stunning. To learn more about a performer, click on a name below.
