TUBA MIRUM LX: HELP US PAY THE CONCERT
Tuba Mirum Lisbon is a project directed by Adam Woolf, in which portuguese voices unite with historic wind instruments from other european countries. Come and listen to this concert on the 2nd of April at 7:30 p.m. in St. George's Church, by Estrela, Lisbon.
The ensemble Les Secrets des Roys has decided to offer a unique concert to the city of Lisbon. The exquisite works of Heinrich Schütz, Orlando di Lasso and their contemporaries, are presented in a programme in which emotive, grand motets contrast with the intimacy of solo pieces. This concert will be a rare opportunity to hear the combination of voices, sackbuts and cornetts, just like they used to be heard on the most important and solemn celebrations of the baroque period. Putting Tuba Mirum Lisboa together implies a number of expenses with accomodation, flights and meals for the invited musicians that come from abroad. Your contribution will help Les Secrets des Roys to enable this project.
