ALTA Renaissance Wind Trio

Per sonar logoOn Sunday, March 3 at 3 p.m. Music at Trinty presents the ALTA Renaissance Wind Trio.  Alta’s unique sound and innovative programming has been delighting audiences throughout the Northeast for over twenty-five years.

While music of the late renaissance remained predominantly vocal, more and more composers were writing music “per sonar”, to be played. Canzonas, ricercari, fantasias, capricci, as well as vocal music, were performed instrumentally by wind and string bands throughout Europe. In this concert, Alta will perform  (with special guests Dr. Charles Turner and Craig Dorschel) an assortment of this wonderful repertoire on recorders ranging from soprano to contra-bass, shawms, dulcians, trombones, crumhorns, flute and percussion.

ALTA Renaissance Wind Trio

Music at Trinty is an outreach of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, located at 73 Lancaster Street, Worcester, MA 01607.  Detailed directions are available at  The event is open to all and a light reception will follow the concert.  There is no admission charge; however, a freewill offering will be received.

We follow a Haggadah, a narrative which combines the traditional ritual of the Seder with a focus on modern day examples of enslavement and freedom. Continue reading Maundy Thursday Celebration at SOV
