Four internationally known recorder players will perform at St. Peter the Fisherman Lutheran Church in Lincoln City.
Letitia Berlin, Frances Blaker, Cléa Galhano, and guest artist Louise Carslake will give virtuoso performances of music for recorder from renaissance times to the present day. Berlin, Blaker, and others have treated concert-goers from Lincoln County and beyond to superb recorder playing every year since 1999. This year’s concert is organized as a “palindrome program,” beginning with a solo, then a duet, trios, quartets, and back again, ending with a solo.
Blaker, Berlin, and Galhano form the Winds and Waves Trio when they perform in Lincoln City as part of the annual Winds and Waves recorder workshop at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology. Blaker and Berlin live and teach in the Bay Area of California. Galhano, originally from Brazil, lives and teaches in St. Paul, Minnesota. Carslake, a native of Great Britain, plays recorder and baroque flute and is on the faculty of Mills College. She a 2013 recorder artist-in-residence at the Sitka Center.
All four performers have studied and performed extensively in the United States, Europe, and elsewhere. They regularly teach and conduct workshops and have recorded for several CD labels.
