Early Music Youth Academy: The Consort Concept
Christ Episcopal Church, 4548 Brooklyn Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98105
The Early Music Youth Academy's spring program explores the many ways instrumental voices come together in sixteenth-century music, from beguilingly tuneful dance music to ornate ornamentation to the smooth subtleties of vocal polyphony played on bowed and plucked strings. Skilled students aged 13-17 play violin, tenor & bass violas da gamba, and harp, led by director Shulamit Kleinerman, Renaissance violin.
The concert lasts about 50 minutes. Young people are welcome, and EMYA is proud to draw a lot of concert-going adults to its performances.
