Throw on your best Ren Faire gear and come to the Denver Public Library to enjoy an inspired concert in our great hall – and yes, it’s safety dance. The Kindred Spirits is a musical ensemble comprised of professional, accomplished and experienced musicians based in Colorado and performing as a group since 1992. Their unique selection of Renaissance and traditional Celtic music, pairs beautifully with their period and eccentric concert dress. And, in the spirit of anachronism, don’t be surprised to hear a modern tune as well. Don’t miss the fun! http://denverlibrary.org/fresh
Playing a variety of pieces from the 16th and early 17th centuries on a variety of historical instruments, including the four-course Renaissance guitar, seven-course Renaissance lute, and the 14 string theorbo, no one conjures the sound of Shakespeare’s world like talented musician, Peter Schimpf. His repertoire includes intricate and lively pieces from England, France, and Italy between the years 1500 and 1640. http://denverlibrary.org/fresh
An expert instrumentalist, Peter Hebert plays the evocative hammered dulcimer and its cousin, the psaltery, with masterful ease – filling the air with the ancient sounds of Medieval Europe. The Graeco-Roman dulcimer (sweet song) derives its name from the Latin dulcis (sweet) and the Greek melos (song). Find out how perfectly named this haunting instrument can be when Peter Hebert makes his dulcimer sing a sweet song. http://denverlibrary.org/fresh
In celebration of Black History Month, the library will present Freedom Riders, an important documentary about the time period during civil rights era when people came together to stop segregation. Special guest Rev. James Peters, Jr. will lead a powerful and insightful discussion along with showing clips of the film.
Fresh City Life is pleased to host Helen Gillet, one of the most talented cellists touring the U.S. and the world. The modern usage of the phrase ‘avant-garde’ may have lost all of its power for being used to describe things that are shocking instead of genuinely new, different and deeply creative. Remind yourself what avant-garde truly means with Helen Gillet’s encore concert at Denver Public Library.
Performing an eclectic repertoire of music that includes classical, Renaissance, medieval, South American, folk, Celtic and cinematic themes, soloist Star Edwards delivers a concert that is redolent with cultural connections and the musical images of ancient times. Her harp playing recalls the legendary harp from Celtic cultures. Star will also be sampling several of her own compositions for harp. This is music that combines the rhythm of the heart with the spirit of the world. http://denverlibrary.org/fresh
