Chicago Chapter American Recorder Society 2023 Spring Workshop:

Viva la Musica!

Presented by Anne Timberlake

Saturday, April 22, 2023 from 9 AM TO 4:30 PM

Covenant Presbyterian Church, fellowship hall, 2012 West Dickens, Chicago, Illinois

About the Workshop
Anne Timberlake will get “meta”, exploring the surprisingly rich tradition of music about… music. We’ll explore music about the power of music, the art of song, and even specific instruments, penned by a diverse array of Renaissance and Baroque composers including Ludwig Senfl, Henry Purcell, William Byrd, and Thomas Tompkins. In parallel, Anne will explore the ways in which we, as players, become part of our own instruments, including the ramifications this has for our technique and musicianship.

About the Conductor
Anne Timberlake has appeared across the United States performing repertoire from Bach to twenty-first-century premieres. She holds degrees in recorder performance from Oberlin Conservatory and Indiana University, Critics have described her playing as “dazzling” (Chicago Classical Review) and “preternaturally persuasive” (The Ann Arbor Observer). A Fulbright grantee, Anne won Early Music America’s 2011 Naxos Recording Competition with her ensemble Wayward Sisters. Anne enjoys teaching as well as playing, and is a regular instructor at workshops coast to coast.
