The audience is treated to consorts of recorders, of curious crumhorns, historical bagpipes both loud and soft, and a mysteriously ancient gemshorn. As you enjoy this exploration of historic instruments, marvel at the wonderful ways human kind has used wood, animal horn, reed, leather, and ingenuity to invent instruments that create a rainbow of musical sounds. These two complementary programs unite to appeal to all the senses, a memorable and meaningful feast for the eyes, ears, and imagination! For EARTHDAY and ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS EVENTS, the artists can also explore mankind’s long partnership with the wind as energy, and how cultures around the world have shaped, utilized, and interacted with wind’s many powers and wonders. Windmills, kites, sailboats, seeds… wind contributes significantly to our lives, pleasures, & history.
