Under the Arches: Chamber Music Series at The Pequot Library: Piffaro

July 12 @ 6:00 pm

Friday, July 12 at 6:00pm

Piffaro, with Grant Herreid, Yale University Professor of Music and Priscilla Herrerid, Director of Piffaro

Piffaro, The Renaissance Band’s mission is to delight audiences with historically informed performances of music from the late Medieval, Renaissance and early Baroque periods, in the manner of the civic, court and chapel wind bands, which existed roughly from 1450-1650. They aim to entertai and educate others in the music itself, its role in the culture of those periods, and its link to music of our day.

This summer’s free, outdoor chamber music series will focus on Early Music, a term encompassing all choral and instrumental music stretching from the early Middle Ages through the Renaissance to the middle of the 17th century. This music is marked by beautiful, textured vocals and melodic harpsichords and lutes, and there is no better place to enjoy this beauty of sound than Pequot Library’s Great Lawn. In the case of inclement weather, concerts will take place in Pequot Library’s auditorium.
