On Sunday, May 19 at 3:00 p.m., The Raleigh Camerata will present a concert featuring fortepiano specialist Randall Love, performing on an original 1805 square piano. The square piano was the instrument for the everyday home, the place where most music making happened. Come hear classical chamber works with the keyboard instrument with which it was most commonly performed. Ticket prices at the door for adults are $20, $15 for seniors, $5 for students, free for ages 12 and under.
The Raleigh Camerata, a group of period musicians located in central North Carolina, is dedicated to the performance of small to midsize chamber music of the Renaissance through early Classical periods. Their instruments (strings, woodwinds and harpsichord) are copies of those used in the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries. Led by artistic director Dr. Kelly Nivison, the Raleigh Camerata strives to bring early music to life for audiences in the Raleigh-Durham area through creative concert programming.
