Winds and Waves faculty to perform recorder music in Lincoln City
Four internationally known recorder players will perform at St. Peter the Fisherman Lutheran Church in Lincoln City on Friday, April 24, at 8:00 p.m.
Letitia Berlin, Frances Blaker, Cléa Galhano, and Rotem Gilbert will give virtuoso performances of music for recorder from renaissance times to the present day. Berlin, Blaker, and others have treated concert-goers from Lincoln County and beyond to superb recorder playing every year since 1999.
This year the group will offer a program entitled “Chiaroscuro: Dark vs. Light in Music,” with recorder solos, duos, trios, and quartets from the Middle Ages to the 21st century.
The four musicians are faculty at the annual Winds and Waves recorder workshop at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology. Blaker and Berlin live and teach in the Bay Area of California. Galhano, originally from Brazil, lives and teaches in St. Paul, Minnesota. Gilbert, a native of Israel, teaches at the Thornton School of Music at the University of Southern California. She is the 2015 recorder artist-in-residence at the Sitka Center.
All have studied and performed extensively in the United States, Europe, and elsewhere. They regularly teach and conduct workshops and have recorded for several CD labels.
St. Peter the Fisherman Lutheran Church is located at 1226 SW 13th Street, on the Coast Highway in Lincoln City. Tickets for Friday’s concert are $15 for adults and $5 for youth 18 and under, and may be purchased at the door.
