Shakespearean Event Featured Baroque-Era Music By Three Notch’d Road
People who attended the “Shakespearean Night of Bard Bits”--a special event held recently at the studios of WCVE PBS--were delighted and entertained by baroque era selections performed by members of Three Notch’d Road, which featured David McCormick on the baroque violin and Anthony Harvey on the theorbo (a type of lute).
The musicians are part of the ensemble, Three Notch’d Road, which is named for a colonial route that once spanned much of central Virginia. Previously named The Charlottesville Baroque Ensemble, Three Notch’d Road was founded in 2011 by local period-instrument specialists David McCormick (baroque violin), Fiona Hughes (baroque violin), and Anne Timberlake (recorder).
Seeking to enrich the local performing arts scene by bringing an exciting and informed approach to music of the baroque era, the group has been lauded for stylish performances alongside eminent baroque dancer Paige Whitley-Bauguess at the 2011 Bach-Handel Festival in Winchester, Virginia. Other performance highlights can be found on Three Notch’d Road’s website.
