Dutch recorder virtuoso to perform at music museum

Dutch recorder virtuoso to perform at music museum Marion Verbruggen, the legendary Dutch recorder virtuoso from Amsterdam, will perform Baroque music by Bach, Telemann, Castello, Stradella, and others, in the Arne B. Larson Concert Hall at the Shrine to Music Museum on the campus of The University of South Dakota, Sunday, March 26, at 2:30 p.m.

This will be the museum's final Sunday afternoon concert of the season.

"Verbruggen is a towering figure among recorder players," according to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. The Chicago Tribune reports that "her recorder virtuosity simply exhausts the available superlatives in a critic's vocabulary."

For her Vermillion appearance, she will be joined by Mary Springfels of Chicago, who plays viola de gamba with New York Pro Musica, the Waverly consort, the Orchestra of St. Lukes, and other international ensembles; Cl�a Galhano, the Brazilian recorder player who recently soloed with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Christopher Hogwood; and Barbara Weiss, who plays harpsichord with Belladonna, the Newberry Consort, the King's Noyse, and other leading ensembles.
