Conducted by Thomas Axworthy, the 30-member ensemble will be playing many sizes of recorder, from the tiny Sopranino to one that sounds 4 octaves lower, the 9-foot SubContraBass.

We will be joined by tenor Steve Padilla for selections from The Triumphs of Oriana, Choral Songs in Honor of her Majesty Queen Victoria, and A Garland for the Queen. The Triumphs are collection of madrigals published in 1601 dedicated to Queen Elizabeth I. Inspired by the earlier Triumphs for Queen VictoriaÕs 80th birthday thirteen composers created the collection Choral Songs in Honor of her Majesty Queen Victoria. In 1953 for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II ten contemporary British composers followed their predecessors and published a collection of songs A Garland for the Queen. Steve will also join LARO to premier Rough Winds a setting of three Shakespeare sonnets by Peter Seibert commissioned by LARO in 2017. FREE
