On Sunday, November 18 at 4:00 pm, the Saint Matthias Cultural Series will present The Wren Masters in a concert. The baroque ensemble met through their involvement in early music performance at William & Mary. Tom Marshall has taught keyboards there since 1981; Ruth Grifﬁoen joined the faculty in 1994 to teach music history, and also founded the W&M Early Music Ensemble. Sarah Glosson ﬁrst took up the viola gamba and baroque cello as a student in that ensemble, going on to play professionally. Susan Via added baroque violin to her repertoire after joining the W&M performance faculty in 1997. They are named after W&M's 17th-century Wren Chapel, their favorite venue. The concert is co-sponsored by the Virginia Commission for the Arts.
Kelly Riggs of Sapphire Ceramics will be our visual artist presenting her functional ceramics for everyday use. She is a local Virginia potter, who has been a practicing potter for over 15 years. Kelly Riggs’ artwork is featured at the South of the James Farmers’ Market.
The concert is open to the public, and donations are appreciated. A reception will follow the concert. For more information, please contact John Murdock at 804-272-8588, ext. 103.
