‘Play it Forward’ spans 500 years of music

You may be thinking of “falling back” timewise on Sunday but a group of Nevada County musicians will be “Play(ing) it Forward” instead by performing music that advances from the 15th to the 20th centuries, a span of 500 years.

Local favorite soprano Beverly Marks will join the Blue Oak Consort and the Sierra Chamber Strings to perform selections from Renaissance dance music, Sephardic folk songs and works by more contemporary composers.

Richard Geisler, maestro of the Village Early Music Society and noble leader of the Blue Oak Consort said, “This concert is a true melding of time… of spirits. It demonstrates the universal thread found within music, passing through time, through cultures, resonating from the past into the future.”

The concert starts at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 29, at the Trinity Episcopal Church, 201 Nevada St. in Nevada City. Admission at the door is $10 general and $7 seniors and children.

Contact Geisler at 477-2293 or richgeis@jps.net for more information.
