"Something Old, Something New" from Boulder Renaissance Consort

The Boulder Renaissance Consort is celebrating its 30th anniversary with a concert that features "Something Old, Something New," to be performed Saturday, June 26, 7:30 pm, at Atonement Lutheran Church, 685 Inca Parkway, Boulder. Admission is $15; students and seniors $12.

Three former members of the group are returning to perform two of the "old," previously performed pieces on the program, Palestrina's "Sicut cervus" and Isaac's "Tota pulchra." Other selections from past repertoire include English love madrigals and a set of the consort's own arrangements of the original medieval "Carmina Burana."

For "Something New," the consort has chosen French chansons, Italian madrigals and dances, a Banchieri motet, and a capriccio by Cima.

Boulder Renaissance Consort members are John Bullock, Shirley Carnahan, Melody English, Josh McGirk, Anne Fjestad Peterson, and Linda Sherman; Doug Burger, Claire Seger, and Dan Seger are returning for this performance.
