The San Francisco-based ensemble’s program features 15th-century music from the time of the infamous Vlad the Impaler, whose tyrannical rule shocked Europe. Ensemble member Shira Kammen is known by many in the area from her early-music performances in Houston. The program features the Lamentation for the Fall of Constantinople by Dufay, French and Italian dance music, German songs, Balkan folk songs, and more.

Please join us for drinks and conversation at Boheme Cafe & Wine Bar on Thursday, October 10th, when a portion of the proceeds from all drink sales during the 5:00PM -7:00PM happy hour will go to support Houston Early Music.
We have a guest artist who will perform at the event: Local Viola da gambist Pedro Funes has returned to Houston after receiving his Masters of Music degree from the Early Music Institute at Indiana University where he studied with Wendy Gillespie. (Ms. Gillespie is a founding member of internationally acclaimed viol consort Fretwork who will open our 2013–14 season on November. 2.)
Meet the Houston Early Music team, enjoy some music and a drink or two, and take in Boheme’s bohemian atmosphere! So don’t be shy, raise a glass (or three) while raising funds for Houston Early Music!
The ensemble’s Houston debut is presented in collaboration with Da Camera of Houston. Semi- staged in candlelight, the program of works by Claudio Monteverdi, Biagio Marini, Francesco Manelli and Benedetto Ferrari is a celebration of Venice in the Golden Age, when art music and popular forms came together and mingled, before emotion and language were restrained by rules and codes.
Houston Early Music presents the world’s finest period ensembles and soloists … bringing to life music from the Middle Ages through the Renaissance to the Baroque and Classical periods. Experience with us early music played on original instruments, by musicians reviving performances of the past.
