Horizon Concert Series brings Shakespearean music to NAU

Baltimore Consort

As part of the 2016-2017 Horizons Concert Series, the Baltimore Consort will visit NAU’s campus to perform “The Food of Love”—featuring songs and consort music from Shakespeare’s plays—at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 27, in Ashurst Hall.

Called the “rambunctious sextet” by Washington Post, the Baltimore Consort is known for their lively renditions of Renaissance tunes; their newest program features music of the Elizabethan era. The consort of instruments, which consists of a lute, cittern, viols and flute, will be accompanied by soprano Danielle Svonavec in their performances of the more popular hits from the Bard’s songbook.

Founded in 1980 to perform the instrumental music of Shakespeare’s time, the Baltimore Consort has explored early English, Scottish and French popular music, focusing on the relationship between folk and art, song and dance.

Tickets are $20 for adults, $12.50 for seniors and NAU employees and free for children and NAU students with a valid ID. Tickets can be purchased online at the Center Ticket Office’s webpage or by calling (928) 523-5661.

Parking in campus lots P3 (behind Gammage), P8 (north of the College of Education on Knoles Drive) and P4 (ADA stalls near Ashurst) is free for those who plan to attend the Horizons Concert Series.
