Broken consort music with the Salish Sea Early Music Festival at Trinity Lutheran, Tacoma

The Salish Sea Early Music Festival keeps going this week with “Broken Consort: Milan,  London and Paris,” an evening of Renaissance and baroque music for four instrumental parts performed in the generous acoustics of Trinity Lutheran Church, Tacoma.

He’ll be joined by Courtney Kuroda on baroque violin, Steven Creswell on baroque viola and Kyobi Himani on harpsichord, playing music from – you guessed it – Milan, London and Paris, three vibrant music centers of the 16th and 17th centuries that encouraged very different styles.
