The Marlborough Arts Center at 231 North Main Street in Marlborough, CT features musician Susan Lowenkron, performing Renaissance and Celtic Music at the next 4th Friday @ the Arts Cafe on Friday, May 23, 2014.
Susan Lowenkron is the founder and director of the trio “Tapestry”, a chamber ensemble of Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, and Celtic music. She is a graduate of the Eastman School of Music, received her Master’s Degree from Hartt College of Music, and teaches both at the Hartford Conservatory of Music and Dance, and the Thames Valley Music School at Connecticut College. She is active as a performer throughout New England and New York.
A 1972 winner of the Bodky Award for Early Music with the Boston-based Renaissance Consort, she plays a variety of instruments including flutes, recorders, krumhorn, whistles, and harp. Her concerts are very interactive as she adds commentary on the more unusual instruments and the colorful texts of the times from medieval motets to dance music of Queen Elizabeth I’s Court, and 18th century music meant for kings and commoners.
The intimate nature and great acoustics of the art-lined Charles W. Hall Gallery at the Marlborough Arts Center is perfectly suited for this musical evening that will bring music of the past into the present.
The concert is from 7:30 – 9:00 p.m., but doors open at 7:00 p.m. so come early, browse the Gift Shop, choose your seats, and settle in for a delightful musical event. Admission at the door is $8 per individual or $15 for two. BYOWine. Other refreshments are available.
