Meet & Ask: Baroque Bowed & Plucked Strings

Sunday, March 27, at 10:30am US Pacific time: Discover the history of modern bowed and plucked instruments when you meet their ancestors from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. SHAK founder/director Shulamit Kleinerman introduces guest teaching artists Alejandro Acosta (lute, theorbo), Wade Davis (Baroque cello), Patricia Ann Neely (viola da gamba), Maria Romero Ramos (Baroque violin), and Julia Seager-Scott (Baroque triple harp). Thanks to the magic of Zoom, each player demonstrates their historical instrument up close with a solo, showing how these historical instruments differ from modern versions. They'll also answer students' questions! 

This program is made possible thanks to generous co-sponsorship by Early Music Seattle, the Lute Society of America, and Pacific Northwest Viols
