The Music of the Mayflower: Reconstructing and performing communal music during a time of physical isolation
August 6 @ 4:00 pm - 4:30 pm EDTFree
A Virtual Concert and Q&A
Presented by Bianca Hall, D.M.A., Lecturer in Music, Old Dominion University, F. Ludwig Diehn School of Music
Using original prints of the music that passengers on the Mayflower brought with them, music they would have known, and music about mariners, this presentation demonstrates the resilience of individuals–not only those who braved the voyage across the Atlantic, but also of musicians now who, during this unique time of physical distancing due to COVID-19, continue to find ways to connect with others near and far. This virtual concert presents music for solo voice, vocal quartet, and voice with lute and brings together professional musicians and educators from across the US who, due to the restrictions of COVID-19, have used technology to rehearse and record their parts from their homes.
