Boston's Blue Heron and New York's Parthenia will present a program of songs for spring from 16th-century France and nearby, featuring music by Claude Le Jeune, André Pevernage, Eustache Du Caurroy, Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck and others. This closing concert of Blue Heron's 14th season presents an exciting collaboration between Blue Heron and the viol consort Parthenia from New York City. The two ensembles first worked together with the wind band Piffaro in a pair of concerts in Philadelphia in 2010 and have been planning a second adventure since then. For this occasion, the four players of Parthenia will be joined by Boston's Emily Walhout (viol) and New York's Hank Heijink (lute), as well as Scott Metcalfe on violin; Blue Heron will field a team of six singers. Free pre-concert talk at 7:15 by Peter Urquhart, University of New Hampshire. Please purchase tickets online.
