On Friday, May 5, at 7:00 p.m., Friends of Music at St. Paul’s will present The Low Down with The Jewel Tones, featuring music for two baroque celli, theorbo, baroque guitar and harpsichord.
The guest musicians are Barbara Blaker Krumdieck, Lisa Liske-Doorandish, Billy Simms and Barbara Weiss.
While the featured bass instruments–“the low down”–are most often used in the supporting role of continuo in music of the baroque era, this concert will showcase “the jewel tones” of these instruments in soloist roles, often accompanying each other. The program will include pieces from the 16th through 18th centuries by Ortiz, Corette, Pasqualini, Bach and others.
An offering will be taken.
