Early Music Now Celebrates Early Spanish Music
With a mission of creating lively connections with the past through historically informed presentations of music composed before 1800, Early Music Now continues to stretch its tagline: “Across Borders – Across Time.” Milwaukee’s premiere presenter of Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque music, continues its 26th season with the exciting New York ensemble Alba Consort performing “Journey the Ancient Seas: Music of Early Spain and Beyond,” bringing the ancient music of the Iberian Peninsula and its Middle-Eastern and European neighbors to Wisconsin Lutheran College on November 17th at 5:00.  There will be a Reception at Intermission and Talk-back with the artists following the performance.
ALBA CONSORT specializes in Mediterranean and European secular music of the medieval and early renaissance on traditional instruments.  The word “ALBA” means white, the white light of dawn, and an ALBA is the troubadour genre of a morning song - often a song of a lover as dawn approaches.  ALBA is currently represented by GEMS Live! and has performed at the Jerome Greene Space, podcast on WQXR radio, and is featured on a CUNY.TV Classic Artist Showcase series.  Under the direction of artistic director Margo Gezairlian Grib, ALBA Consort has performed at various concert series in and around New York, for various festivals, and continues to pursue original programming tracing cross cultural influences through ancient music.
Margo Gezairlian Grib (voice) has performed with prominent early music ensembles and festivals as well as on opera and theater stages around the world.  Rex Benincasa (voice, frame drums, darbouka, riq, hurdy-gurdy) has been a freelancing drummer and world music percussion specialist in New York since 1978.  Haig Manoukian (oud) has played with many of the best musicians in Turkey, Armenia and the Arab world, and has been a featured soloist in Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall.  Christopher Morrongiello (lute, guitarra española) is a British Marshall Scholar, a graduate of the University of Oxford (Ph.D. in musicology), and has performed and recorded to critical acclaim throughout Europe and the United States.
The Early Music Now series also features programs of French Baroque music and Italian solo cantatas on the East Side, and a feast of Slavic music in the perfect local venue: the Basilica of Saint Josaphat. A favorite Medieval Christmas program in the glorious St. Joseph Center Chapel rounds out the season, with the inclusion of members of the Milwaukee Choral Artists.
