On May 24th I visited Veritas School in Newberg, Oregon, to share musical instruments from the Middle Ages and Renaissance with the students.
The instruments I brought along to share were:
Tenor and Bass Krummhorns
5 String Medieval Fiddle (Vielle, Fidel)
Bass Viola da Gamba
Clavichord (after Urbino)
This was my third visit to this school, for teaching or performance purposes. As ever, I found the students extremely polite and attentive, and was pleased by the many intelligent and thoughtful questions I was asked, about the instruments, the music, or the history connected to both.
I applaud the high level of musical culture fostered at Veritas School, under the visionary guidance of Sally Mehler, and thank her and the students for inviting me back. I look forward to future visits there.
