First Sunday Concert with Circa 1600 at Renaissance Center
Circa 1600 presents "Dancing for Julia," music associated with the work of musicologist and dance historian Julia Sutton, on Sunday, March 3 at 2 p.m. at the Renaissance Center, 650 East Pleasant St.
Circa 1600 is dedicated to high renaissance and early baroque music, including lute trios, lute songs, dance music, and vocal polyphony. With an unusual instrumentation of three lutes complemented by three singers, the group presents rarely-heard music of the time as well as original arrangements following the performance practices of the era. The musicians are Catherine Bell, soprano; Robert Castellano, lutenist; Donnie Cotter, tenor; Meg Pash, lutenist and mezzo-soprano; Christopher Stetson, lutenist; and guest artist soprano Alicia DePaolo.
The event is free and open to the public. Arrive promptly as seating is limited to 35.
This event is co-sponsored by the Amherst Women’s Club and Bulkley, Richardson.
