The Oregon Coast Recorder Society will play a program of music from early to contemporary times on Sunday, June 26 at 3:00 p.m. on the second floor of Newport’s Visual Art Center.
Sunday’s audience will be treated to a fanfare on gemshorns, popular music/songs, instrumental pieces, a motet by J. S. Bach, folksongs, mixed folk genres, a composition by our leader Corlu Collier – “4 AM” (yes she does stay up all night), a round and a Quaker hymn sing-a-long.
Recorder Society members play recorders of several sizes, plus other instruments as needed. For this concert they will add viola da gamba, gemshorns, guitar, violins, cello, and accordion.
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 777NW Beach Drive, on the Nye Beach turnaround. For further information, please call (541) 961-1228, or visit www.coastrecorder.org.
