Atlanta Music Lovers and Musicians Message Board › Our new sponsors, Harmonie Universelle
|A former member||
Here's a plug for an Atlanta group that has been performing since 1985. They are one of our new sponsors in our Meetup group.
Harmonie Universelle is giving a free concert this Sunday afternoon, February 19, 2012. Here's the Meetup announcement.
Harmonie Universelle is a Baroque chamber ensemble featuring Daniel Pyle, Harpsichord, and Catherine Bull, Flute, focused on the music of the 17th, 18th, and 20th century, played on historical instruments. The core ensemble is often expanded with a second flute, violins, cello or viola-da-gamba, and vocalists.
Catherine and Daniel met in the Netherlands in 1984; since then they have lived and worked in Atlanta. They have performed at the Utrecht Early Music Festival, the Boston Early Music Festival, in London (Burgh House, Fenton House, St. Martin-in-the-Fields), Amsterdam (Onze Leiver Heer op Zolder, Amsterdam Bijbelsmuseum, Museum Amstelkring, Begijnhofkerk), Paris ("Atelier" Series at the American Church), and throughout the American southeast.
Harmonie Universelle was the first early-music ensemble to be awarded a residency through the NEA's "Chamber Music in Rural Residencies" in 1993-94. They also perform new music for old instruments, and have twice given world-premier performances of new works for baroque-flute at the conventions of the National Flute Association.
