Avant-Garde: Then and Now – Quilisma Consort at Loring-Greenough House
March 6, 2011
Composers have always sought new ways to write music. Join the Quilisma Consort for an exploration of innovative sounds, from Medieval hocket and ars subtilior, to contemporary pieces that use some of the same techniques. Works of Filippotto and Antonello da Caserta, Johanes Ciconia, Borlet, Melika M. Fitzhugh, Robert Kyr, Lance Eccles, and David Amram, performed on Renaissance and modern instruments. On Sunday, March 6, 2011, at 3:00 p.m. at the historic Loring-Greenough House, 12 South Street, Jamaica Plain.
Afternoon tea follows the program.
