Bring on the Spring!
A French & English Celebration of Springtime on February 23, 3:00 pm
at Church of the New Covenant, 3330 Chestnut Drive, Doraville, GA
(on the web at www.churchofthenewcovenant.org and www.laudamusicam.org).
A concert for the entire family! Our Concerts with a Cause are free. We invite you to participate in a free-will offering after the concert to benefit Clifton Sanctuary Shelter. Donations for Lauda Musicam are also welcome.
Lauda Musicam of Atlanta, conducted by Jody Miller, performs Medieval and Renaissance music on instruments appropriate for the time period. After the dreary winter
months, the coming of spring warrants a celebration. Lauda performs some of the music written for this joyous annual change in seasons. Lauda Musicam of Atlanta is an instrumental ensemble of recorders, viols, flutes, harpsichord, sackbuts, shawms, harps, crumhorns, cornettos, and percussion. Uncommon Practice, an a cappella vocal ensemble specializing in music before Bach’s “common practice” period, will assist.
Following the concert, the ensemble will offer an “instrument petting zoo,” allowing the audience to see the instruments up close and even play them!
Concerts with a Cause is a concert series presented by various performers and Church of the New Covenant as a gift to the community. It is hoped that this series of concerts will enrich the cultural life of the community and aid deserving programs, ministries and missions, in and beyond the Atlanta area. A freewill offering is taken at the close of each program and donated to a designated cause. Performance fees, if required, are underwritten by donors prior to concert dates, so that all audience contributions may be applied to the particular cause of each concert. If you wish to contribute towards the support of this series, please make your contribution payable to “Church of the New Covenant,” with the designation “Concerts with a Cause Fund.”
