Fretwork, viol consort
Thursday, October 13, 2016
Brendle Recital Hall, Scales Fine Arts Center
6:40 pm Pre-concert Talk (Room M208)
7:30 pm Performance
The Secrest Artists Series present Fretwork, a viol consort. Currently
anniversary, Fretwork is the world’s leading viol
consort—a historically-informed chamber ensemble who plays the mu-
sic of early modern England on Renaissance instruments that are the
forerunners to modern-day stringed instruments. Their recordings have
won both the Grand Prix du Disque and a Gramophone Award, and they
have been featured on the soundtracks of two films by the American
director Jim Jarmusch.
The pre-concert talk will be led by Dr. Stewart Carter, Chair of the Department of Music at Wake Forest University, past-President of the
Society for Seventeenth-Century Music and also of the American Musical Instrument Society.
Wake Forest faculty, staff and retirees receive free admission for themselves and one guest to each Secrest Artists
Series performance. WFU Students receive free admission for themselves. Simply show your WFU I.D. at the door.
