Medieval, renaissance, baroque music recital set for July 4

A previous performance of the faculty of the Mountain Collegium Music Workshop.

The faculty of the Mountain Collegium Music Workshop will perform medieval, renaissance, baroque and contemporary music on early and folk instruments at 8 p.m. Thursday, July 4, in the recital hall of Western Carolina University’s Coulter Building.

Admission to the recital is free, but donations to the Gerald R. Moore Mountain Collegium Scholarship will be accepted.

The Mountain Collegium Music Workshop is an annual event at WCU and typically offers classes on instruments used in 15th– through 18th-century Europe, which helps performers achieve a sound and effect appropriate for these styles of music. The teaching organization’s site can be found at www.mountaincollegium.org.

Musicians performing include Gail Ann Schroeder, Katherine Muldiner, Holly Maurer and Chrissy Spencer (violas da gamba); Chris Armijo, Valerie Austin, Phil Hollar, Jody Miller, Patricia Petersen, Gwyn Roberts and Anne Timberlake (recorders and other renaissance winds); Liza Malamut (sackbut); Sue Richards (harp); Lorriane Hammond (folk instruments); Robert Bolyard (voice, organ and viola da gamba); and Barbara Weiss (harpsichord and recorder).

Will Peebles, professor of bassoon in WCU’s School of Music, will perform on dulcian.
