Alkemie & Friends present “Florilegium: Plant Strains Across the English Channel”
January 23 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm EST
Join Alkemie & Friends for an interactive olfactory concert on January 23, 2021 at 8:00 p.m. EST! Violets, grapes, roses, medicinal herbs, and Tolkien’s “Simbelmynë” (or Evermind) all make an appearance in this concert of 16th-century vocal and instrumental music from England and France. “Peel-n-sniff” cards bearing essential oils and contemporaneous botanical images are handmade to accompany this program – ticket buyers receive a series of fragrances that match plants referenced in the music.
Alkemie members Tracy Cowart (voice, harps) and Sian Ricketts (voice, winds) are joined by Corey Shotwell (tenor, melodica), Harrison Hintzsche (baritone, melodica, percussion), Ben Matus (tenor, winds, composer), and Jim Hopkins (baritone, harmonium).
It’s SMELL-O-VISION – but in the privacy of your own home with custom-made cards that match the images on-screen.
