Consortium Aurora Borealis presents “Oboe Virtuosi at the German Courts”

Entertainment Update

THUNDER BAY – ENTERTAINMENT – Consortium Aurora Borealis is celebrating the rich sound of three double-reed woodwind instruments performing together. The royal and ducal courts of 18th-century Germany were seats of rich musical culture; the concert connects us to celebrated oboists of that time and place. This programme of Baroque music with two oboes and bassoon returns Consortium to its historic roots. Works by Vivaldi, Handel, Telemann, Quantz, C.P.E. Bach, Heinichen, and Zelenka.

Colleen Kennedy and Gwen Buttemer, oboe; Harold Wevers, bassoon; with Marc Palmquist, cello and Elizabeth Ganiatsos, harpsichord.
