Special thank you to concert sponsors Drs. Bill Pope and Elizabeth Tippet Pope

Curator/conductor John Wiens has created an innovative offering, featuring top Canadian countertenor Dan Cabena and a consort of four viol da gambas (like a cello but with frets and more strings in soprano, alto, tenor, and bass ranges). The repertoire will showcase the Elizabethan Renaissance but also have fun combining very old instruments with very new scores!

Composers include Byrd, Tallis and Canadians Carmen Braden, and Andrew Balfour.
