The Canberra Recorder and Early Music Society’s (CREMS) recorder orchestra will take you on a journey of festive tunes from the 14th century, consort music from the Renaissance and Baroque eras, as well as witty arrangements of some popular carols. Enjoy this musical treat!
For centuries the time of advent has been marked by a spirit of expectation, anticipation and joy. Special dishes, decorations, gifts and music have been prepared in various forms and in many traditions, all over the world.
CREMS is a society of recorder enthusiasts in the Canberra region. They enjoy playing both early and modern music on recorders of all sizes from the tiny sopranino to the large contrabass. CREMS offer playing opportunities including recorder orchestras, ensembles and workshops led by professional tutors.
Barbara Jerjen, music teacher and performer, is the Musical Director of CREMS and conducts the CREMS recorder orchestra and ensembles. Barbara studied flute and recorder at the conservatory of Basel, as well as musicology, pedagogy and languages at the University of Basel, Switzerland.
Duration 60 minutes.
