We hope you can join us for the return of early music specialists from the University of Oregon. Those three musicians include two on solo lines, violin & trombone (those solo "lines" are the "á 2" focus) with continuo, keyboard, playing a base line with improvised chords. They'll be presenting works of Dario Castello, Biago Marini, and Giovanni Battista Fontana. Musicians include Holly Roberts, violin; Bodie Pfost, sackbut (trombone); and Margaret Gries, harpsichord.

Also on tap is Humboldt's own Trumpet Consort von Humboldt, in a short program of trumpet ensemble music ranging from the time of Sir Francis Drake and Elizabethan England, to baroque Germany and Prussia, then to early 19th-century France. TCvH is seven members: six on "real deal" natural trumpet copies without valves, plus drummer on a period-style rope tension drum -- all in costume! Musicians are Gil Cline, Chris Cox, Ryan Brown, Andrew Henderson, Molly Harvis, Audrey McCombs, & Kevin Amos (drum).
