The Rose Ensemble presented by Camerata will be performed on Saturday, November 21. The Minneapolis–based vocal group returns to the series with Il Poverello (“the poor one”), a thematic program featuring readings and music about Francis of Assisi ranging from the 12th to the 15th centuries.
The program includes a mix of music and culture of medieval Spain where Jews, Christians and Muslims lived together in a shared and artistic society, which demonstrates how diversity and tolerance stays alive in music. Unique instruments that will be part of the music making include a riqq (tambourine), dumbek (drum) and rebec (fiddle).
Date: November 21, 2015 | Time: 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM | Time Details: 8:00 PM | Location: Battelle Auditorium, Battelle Blvd, Richland, WA 99352 | For more information visit Camerata's website.
About Camerata Musica
Camerata Musica programs feature chamber music concerts by small ensembles with occasional solo recitals. Performers include local, national, and internationally known musicians.
Camerata does not sell tickets to its programs. Support is provided primarily by donations from individual patrons with occasional additional funding from corporate sponsorships, local foundations, and grants from organizations like ArtsWA (the Washington State Arts Commission) and the National Endowment for the Arts.
In addition to receiving recognition on the program, patrons (donors who contribute $80.00 or more a year) receive an announcement card before each concert. By presenting these reminders before 7:45, patrons and their families (i.e. 2 adults and accompanying children under 18) receive priority seating. At 7:45 non-patrons are admitted on a first-come, first-seated basis. Patrons arriving after 7:45 are admitted on the same basis as non-patrons. Camerata does not have any paid staff. All administrative tasks are handled by its volunteer Board of Directors. [source: Camerata's website]Posted by Colleen Lane on
