The17th Prescott RecorderWorkshop: Music, Mystery, and Meyhem
Saturday, August 11, 2018, 9 am to 5 pmSunday, August 12, 2018, 9 am to 12 noon
The Desert Pipes (Phoenix) & the Central Highlands (Prescott) ARS Chapters invite you to Yavapai Hills Clubhouse, 4975 Hornet Drive, Prescott, AZ 86301
The intrigue and enigma surrounding the deaths of select baroque composers offers an opportunity to explore their music and the mysteries of their lives. Was it the rivalry of fellow composers? Jilted lovers? We may never know; but we can experience the impassioned music of composers such as Alessandro Stradella, Jean-Marie LeClair, and others. Be captivated by the stories that unfold through the music of a bygone era.
Jennifer Carpenter’s love for the recorder began while earning her Bachelor of Music in clarinet performance at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She received a Master of Music degree in musicology with an emphasis in early music performance from University of North Texas and is ABD (all but dissertation) for her PhD in the same field from UNT.
As a recorder player, Jennifer performs regularly as a soloist and in early music ensembles in both Texas and Colorado. She is a member of Parish House Baroque, Colorado Springs’ early music ensemble, which performs concerts along the Front Range.
She enjoys teaching as much as performing. In addition to teaching private les-sons and coaching ensembles, Jennifer has been on the faculty of early music workshops in TX, CA, NM, and CO. Jennifer was the music director of the Dallas Recorder Society from 2009–2014 and continues to mentor and coach ARS chapters across the country. Now happily a resident of Colorado Springs, CO, she is enjoying integrating into the early music scene on the Front Range.
