Next Concert: TAPESTRY

Three Weddings and a Funeral -- Music of Guillaume Du Fay

Sunday, February 11, 2007 at 4pm
Location: Trinity Episcopal Church, 1015 Holman (at Main)

NOTE *** NOTE *** NOTE

The site for this concert has changed. The new site is Trinity Episcopal Church, 1015 Holman (at Main).  The time and date (Sunday, February 11 at 4:00 pm) remain the same.  See Letter to subscribers, below.

The pageantry of the lavish 15th-century wedding is brought to life by the sublime voices of the women of Tapestry― performing the magnificent music of Guillaume Du Fay, the most renowned composer of his time. The acclaimed Boston-based trio is joined by Medieval Strings (Shira Kammen and Margriet Tindemans, vielles and Grant Herreid, voice and lute) in an intriguing selection of motets, love songs and rousing dances.

Letter to Subscribers regarding Tapestry and Monica Hugget / Richard Savino concerts

 

Dear HEM subscriber:

At long last we are able to provide tickets for the February 11 concert by Tapestry.  The primary reason for the delay in getting the tickets to you is that, due to unforeseen circumstances, it became necessary to change the location of the concert.  However, we are most fortunate to be able to present this concert at Trinity Episcopal Church, 1015 Holman (at Main).  The time and date (Sunday, February 11 at 4:00 pm) remain the same. 

Also enclosed you will find replacement tickets for the April 20 concert by Monica Huggett and Richard Savino.  The tickets provided at the beginning of this season were printed with an incorrect date.  Some of you were provided tickets with that mistake corrected by hand but to avoid further confusion, we are providing new tickets to all of our subscribers.

We suggest that you to not discard the first set of tickets you received  but, after correcting the date for the concert, give them to acquaintances to attend the concert with you.  This concert promises to be truly outstanding. Ms. Huggett is one of the foremost baroque violinists on the worldwide early music scene and Mr. Savino is known to many of you from his many appearances in Houston.  This would be a marvelous opportunity to introduce music lovers to the exceptional quality of  our concerts.

If there are problems with the enclosed tickets or if these changes should cause you any inconvenience, please me know either by phone (713) 432-1744 or email   artistic.director@houstonearlymusic.org.

Regards,

Nancy Ellis
Artistic Director
