People have always interacted with the streams, lakes, and oceans on the planet’s surface – in industry, in recreation, and in the arts. In this multimedia presentation, Nota Bene Baroque Players celebrates the Grand River, our region’s historic waterway. By exploring the Grand River in words, images, and music we come to realize that rivers all over the planet have much in common. Marianne Brandis, author of The Grand River, reads passages reflecting on rivers in general and on the Grand in particular, while Gerard Brender à Brandis’s wood engravings of scenes along the river, most of which appear in the book, will be on display. Nota Bene Baroque Players will perform music written by Baroque composers inspired by water, including works by Handel, Telemann, Vivaldi, Rameau, and Lully. Original engravings, and copies of the book, will be available for purchase at the concert.
