Musicke Antiqua, an early music consort that performs in Brevard and surrounding areas, will perform at UUTC to benefit the Brevard Philharmonic's Donate Your Instrument drive. When a musician donates an instrument, it needs service and repairs to prepare it for student use in our public schools. Funds raised from this concert will go to this effort.
The consort typically plays a free concert in December at the Rogow Room in the Transylvania County Library. This will be an excellent "mid-year" opportunity for those who enjoy the work of this excellent group.
Retired musicians, or those with more instruments than they need, are encouraged to donate their no-longer-needed instruments to the Philharmonic to be used by young musicians in the Transylvania County Public Schools. Additional funds must be raised to repair or rehabilitate these instruments for new use. Musicke Antiqua is donating the funds from this performance to support the work of this fine initiative. Your generosity is greatly appreciated--and if you have an instrument to donate, bring that, too!
Musicke Antiqua seeks to enrich cultural life through exciting, historically-informed live performances and educational programs that will inspire a new appreciation of early music and enable and support recorder playing as a shared social experience. Musicke Antiqua offers tailor-made projects to suit schools and community groups.
The consort performs music primarily from the Medieval and Renaissance periods, in costume, on replicas of a wide variety of early music instruments, including seven sizes of recorders, double reed instruments, strings, and lots of percussion.

Suggested Donation: $15 -- but feel free to contribute more to this great cause!
