Event description

Description

The Masque is a genre of entertainment developed in England during the 16th and 17th centuries. Its origins from festivals and revels of the Renaissance were combined with elements such as wearing a masque in the style of the English, adopting dance choreography from the French Ballet de Cour, and staging elaborate scenic designs in the way of the Italian Intermedio. The CREMS Orchestra will present you with a selection of courtly masque dances from as early as the Elizabethan era. Wear your own masque to this ball, come "in disguise" and unmasque in Court.

CREMS is a society of recorder enthusiasts from the Canberra region. We enjoy playing both early and modern music on recorders of all sizes from the tiny sopranino to the large contrabass. We offer playing opportunities including recorder orchestras, ensembles and workshops led by professional tutors.

Barbara Jerjen, music teacher and performer, is the Musical Director of CREMS. Barbara studied flute and recorder at the Conservatory of Basel, as well as musicology, pedagogy and languages at the University of Basel, Switzerland.
