SCA Music

A Concert of Medieval and Renaissance Music

In the days before records and radio, music was a social activity. In the renaissance and earlier periods, it was not only a social and entertainment pursuit, but also a courtly grace all well-born members of society practiced. March is International Early Music Month, and on March 25, 2017, you’re invited to see enthusiasts of medieval and renaissance music as they perform a free concert of works from those time periods.

Who:

The Oakwood Consort, instrumental players of the local SCA Barony of the Steppes Music Guild (www.steppes.ansteorra.org )

What:

A concert of 45 to 50 minutes played in period style.

When:

2:00pm, Saturday March 25, 2017.

Where:

The J. Erik Jonsson Central Library, 1515 Young Street, Dallas TX 75201. (lat 32.778169, long -96.796847), 4th floor Fine Arts performance area.

Programs will be available for students needing recital credit, and following the performance, players will be available to answer questions about their instruments and the music they played.

As an added bonus, prior to the performance, Ryan Smith, Library Associate, will lead a discussion on interlibrary loan, WorldCat, and other research resources available at the library. And of course the library will be open to allow you to browse the stacks and resources, and if you have a Dallas Public Library card to check things out.

So come out and join us for a day of music, information, and research.
