Heiland Consort: Old World/New World Legends Lyndon Vermont

Heliand Consort announces their latest woodwind quartet program, "Old World/New World Legends," an eclectic mix of chamber music and song inspired by old world mythology and new world folk and dance music.

Flutist Berta Frank, oboist Katie Oprea, clarinetist Elisabeth LeBlanc and bassoonist Rachael Elliott perform virtuosic solos for each instrument as well as woodwind trios, quartets and songs. Listeners will enjoy the sensuous melodies and precocious harmonies of Claude Debussy, Jean Francaix and Benjamin Britten. Familiar folk dances include a Brazilian waltz by Francisco Mignone and a habanera by Cuban-American composer and saxophonist, Paquito D'Rivera.

A program highlight and one of several pieces inspired by Greek mythology is "What Pan Was Doing," written for Heliand Consort by Vermont composer Don Jamison. Jamison uses a poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning as the starting point to recount the brutal tale of how Pan, the Greek god of shepherds and music, created his "pan pipe" or reed flute.

Heliand Consort has appeared throughout Vermont over the past eleven years with additional forays to New Hampshire and North Carolina. They've cultivated a devoted audience and crafted a variety of whimsical programs for winds and piano along with their signature folk songs. The concerts are casual and families are welcome to attend. The musicians will offer background about the pieces before performing, and audience members are always invited to meet the musicians and ask questions about the music!
