La Folia Baroque String Ensemble

Josephine van Lier, artistic director
Kim Bertsch, baroque violin
Lois Harder, baroque violin, baroque viola
Grant Sigurdson, baroque violin
Valerie Sim, baroque violin, baroque viola
Carol Sperling, baroque violin
Tom Burton, baroque violin
Shauna Leonard, baroque cello
Erik Visser, baroque cello
Renee Perez, theorbo, archlute
Adela Wedler, harpsichord

NOTES:

La Folia is a string ensemble dedicated to the historically informed performance of early music. Their repertoire includes many works by little known composers from the renaissance and baroque eras. Much of the music they play has never been published and they regularly play from often difficult to read manuscripts and learning to play the many different clefs used in the period. Most of the musicians play on (copies of) period instruments and bows and use historic strings.
The ensemble rehearses weekly on Tuesday evenings and has a minimum of three performances per season. In addition, La Folia has accompanied choirs wishing to work with a period string ensemble for their performances. La Folia was founded in 2012.

U of A Early Music Ensemble

Mairi-Irene McCormack, mezzo-soprano
Stephanie Wong, baroque oboe
Conrad Sobieraj, cello
Renée Pérez Rodríguez, theorbo/archlute
Charlotte Rekken, harpsichord

NOTES:

The impetus for this group is to recreate what was the “Collegium Musicum”, an early music ensemble that used to be at the University of Alberta.  Created by lutenist and music student Renée Pérez, this new ensemble would like to establish an enduring period performance legacy at the university, covering music from the medieval, renaissance and baroque eras.  Here, we present music from the Renaissance, on instruments that we hope provide a glimpse into what these pieces would have sounded like back then.
