Even though I'm hoping a lot of our photos will be from the out-of-doors, I thought the bright colors here worked out pretty well. :)
This is a picture of Ria and friends at her Madrigals' Concert from a few nights ago. This is a 10 week program at a local music school of ancient music (both sung and played on the recorder) in a variety of ancient languages. Ria informs me that more than half of the music was sacred music, including a chant piece from the 6th century (Crux Fidelis).
It was lovely! Ria's the one in the teal dress, playing her tenor recorder.
By the way, I'm not exactly sure why the class is commonly referred to as "Madrigals".
