April 12 Concert: Dopo la pioggia, by Andreini

The Calgary Renaissance Singers and Players will be performing a new composition by Marcia Jenneth Epstein in our upcoming concert this Saturday. The lyrics and inspiration for this work arise from “Dopo la pioggia,” a poem by Isabella Andreini (1562-1604), an Italian actress and writer. Come experience the first live performance of this work at our “Rock Stars of the Italian Renaissance” concert April 12, 2014. Epstein will also deliver the pre-concert talk at 7pm. The image below, an excerpt from our concert programme, shows the Italian lyrics and English translation.
