Oregon Coast Recorder Society to perform Sunday, June 28
The Oregon Coast Recorder Society will play a program of music from early to contemporary times on Sunday, June 28 at 3:00 p.m. on the second floor of Newport’s Visual Art Center.
Sunday’s audience will be treated to a fugue by J. S. Bach, a renaissance arrangement of “A Mighty Fortress is Our God,” a 13th-century dance, a pair of charming minuets by the French baroque composer Jean-Baptiste Lully, two American cowboy songs, and other pieces new and old.
Recorder Society members play recorders of several sizes, plus other instruments as needed. For this concert they will add violas da gamba, gemshorns, guitar, violin, cello, and string bass.
There will be an opportunity after the concert to take a closer look at the instruments and talk with players, and refreshments will be served. OCRS concerts are free and open to the public.
Newport’s Visual Art Center is located at 777 NW Beach Drive, on the Nye Beach turnaround. For further information, please call (541) 961-1228, or visit www.coastrecorder.org.
