Fanfare Consort

Thom Freas, Artistic Direcctor & performer on clarino. Fanfare Consort, the critically acclaimed Early Music Consort, is dedicated to the research, publication, performance and recording of literature composed prior to the 19th century. The ensemble preserves this rich and unheard repertiore by performing modern-day premieres of manuscripts by composers who have been eclipsed by the great masters of music. All concerts are presented on historically accurate instruments in order to heighten public awareness of an earlier style of performance. The core ensemble of clarino (valveless baroque trumpet), baroque strings (gut strings) and basso continuo (chitarrone [fretted bass lute] and/or violone [fretted, gut strings], harpsichord [plucked strings], and/or positiv organ [portable baroque tracker pipe organ], etc.) can be enhanced with voices and additional instruments. Concerts are presented as lecture/demonstration performances that are both educational and entertaining.
