5:30 p.m. Beat the Rush: Texas Early Music Project
Beat the Rush is a series of gallery concerts in which musicians perform in response to the paintings, drawings, and sculptures on display. This month, Texas Early Music Project presents a program of music from and about 12th and 13th century Europe, in conjunction with the Blanton's exhibition The Crusader Bible. An ensemble of vocalists and musicians performing on instruments from the time period (vielle, rebec, harp, gittern, psaltery, and percussion) will perform troubadour works from southern France and trouvère songs from northern France (including one written by Richard the Lionheart after he was kidnapped while returning home from the Third Crusade) as well as music from northern Iberia, Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris, and the original Carmina Burana manuscript.
6:30 p.m. Perspectives: Tom Lee
