The Globe-Miami Community Concert Association will be hosting Bartholomew Faire at Miami High on Thursday, Jan. 24, 2013 beginning at 7 p.m.
Bartholomew Faire was formed in 1996 with the intent of making the arcane and diverse world of ‘early music’ accessible and enjoyable to all audiences. Their catchline “experience the ancient” not only beckons the listener to another time and place, but also emphasizes the immediate impact that antique music can have on the present moment.
Following the ancient traditions of music-making, Bartholomew Faire uses the medieval delineation of ‘loud’ and ‘soft’ instrument combinations to create different textures of sound. The ‘soft’ music typically features the lute, harp, low recorders, ocarinas, oud, citole, and ethereal percussion effects like the ocean drum or spring drum. The ‘loud’ band turns people’s heads with the shawm, Kelhorn, pipe and tabor, the intriguing hurdy-gurdy, and Louis’ mighty Gothic bagpipe. With Bartholomew Faire’s impressive instrumentation, the possibilities are endless.
The Globe-Miami Community Concert Association would like to invite everyone out to a night of great entertainment. Season tickets are still available at a great price of $35/Adult and $10/Student for the remaining three concerts scheduled this season. Season passes, family and single parent packages are also available and can be purchased the door the prior to the concert.
