Lincoln Early Music Concert
Sinai Festival Sounds, a concert series of Sinai Lutheran Church in Fremont, brings its 2017-2018 season to a close with the Lincoln Early Music Consort on May 6 at 3:00 p.m. The free program will include background and demonstrations of instruments not often heard in live performance, and will include music ranging from the 13th to 17th centuries.
The Lincoln Early Music Consort was formed in 1990 for the purpose of performing Medieval and Renaissance music on recorders, krummhorns and the occasional cornamuse. Since then they have added Celtic and Sephardic music to their repertoire and have expanded their collection of period replica instruments. The collection now includes viols, gemshorns, sackbuts, psaltery, hammered dulcimer, shawm, hurdy gurdy and Renaissance flute as well as percussion including bells, tabor and dumbek. The ensemble regularly plays Christmas and spring concerts at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Lincoln as well as other performances. Members include Carole Goebes, Paul Burrow, Jean Henderson, Genevieve Randall, and Bob Haack.
Sinai Festival Sounds concerts are supported by free-will offerings and other generous donations. An anonymous donor has offered matching funds up to $1,000 for donations made to the series at this event. Sinai Lutheran Church is located at 950 East 8th Street in Fremont, Nebraska.
