Heliand Consort at Brandon Music

 

A dynamic group of virtuoso musicians, Heliand Consort performs engaging classical music, from the baroque era through 20th century and contemporary repertoire. The group, now in their eighth season, comes to Brandon Music on Friday, December 20th at 7:30pm.

Heliand is recognized for its inspired programs, musical vitality, and commitment to bringing classical music to new audiences through ongoing partnerships with schools, home health and senior centers. Their mission is to nurture the arts in their communities through excellence and a fresh approach to classical music performance.

Jim Lowe, writing in the Time Argus had this to say about their performance:
"The Heliand Consort […] performance was substantial and musically rewarding. [They] played with great skill and musical understanding. These fine players […] achieved a Romantic grandeur normally reserved for strings and piano."

Their core ensemble includes the flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and piano but they appear in a variety of configurations, along with occasional guest artists including vocalists, dancers and percussionists. Performing on the 20 th will be Berta Frank, flute; Katie Evans, oboe; Elisabeth LeBlanc, clarinet; and Nicola Cannizzaro, percussion. The program will include JS Bach's Presto from Violin Sonata No. 1 in g minor, Beethoven's Trio in C Major Op. 87, Peter Tanner's Diversions for Flute and Marimba, and Moondog's Bells are Ringing, among others.

Hailed for their passionate performances of classical music, Heliand Consort has appeared live on VPR Classical and WGDR, given interviews on WCVT, and has twice been selected as a Pick of the Week by Seven Days . The Times-Argus described their recent piano sextet performance as “substantial and musically rewarding.”

Tickets are $15. A pre-concert dinner is also available for $15. Reservations are required for dinner and recommended for the show. Contact us at (802)465-4071 or via e-mail. Venue is BYOB.
