RE: [elvavtiden] Court & Country's Third Anniversary
Congratulations on the anniversary, Court & Country!
Court & Country has just celebrated its third birthday as a performing entity on April 4 and we would like to share our joy and thank you all for your support!
This medieval & renaissance vocal ensemble was first conceived at a Fiber Arts Night gathering in the northwest suburbs. Teleri, Tabitha & Arrienne first performed together at Stone Dog Inn on April 4, 2009, and called themselves Court & Country. After Stone Dog Inn, Margrett joined and we started having formal group rehearsals at Teleri's house in April 2009.
Over the last three years, we have regretfully parted ways with some of our members. However, we have also happily added new friends to our ensemble. Our current active membership includes Teleri, Margrett, Margretha, Keith, Sonia, Elizabeth, Adam and Beatrice.
We welcome more voices and encourage you to contact us at CourtAndCountry@... if you wish to explore singing medieval and renaissance music with us. We rehearse on Wednesday evenings in the northwest suburbs.
