Final Concert of the 2016-17 Season— April 23, 2017
The Rose Ensemble

It rarely happens that a program change occurs after we print the brochure, but that happened this season.  The Rose Ensemble will not be able to present their previously announced Hawaiian program, but instead will perform an equally attractive program, American Roots: Harmonies That Shaped a Nation.   This lively concert will include the 12-member ensemble's performances of the ballads, hymns, fiddle tunes, and country dances that led to traditional American music like Bluegrass and Gospel.

Founded in 1996 by Artistic Director Jordan Sramek, The Rose Ensemble has achieved an international reputation as a premiere American early music ensemble. Uniting virtuosic vocal artistry with scholarly research, The Rose Ensemble creates musical performances and educational programs that connect audiences to compelling stories of human history, culture, and spirituality from around the world.
