The Nottingham Players, a local ensemble of harpsichord/piano, flute, oboe, and cello, will perform at 3 p.m. Sunday, June 9, as part of the “Trinity Presents …” series at Trinity Episcopal Church.
The program, “Musical Vignettes for a Summer Afternoon,” will feature compositions by Telemann, Kaye, Handel, Dring, Nazareth, Yradier and Villoldo.
The musicians might be familiar faces from previous local performances.
All have some connection to the University of Redlands. Becky Long, a freelance cellist, holds her master’s degree in cello from the U of R, is a master teacher for the university’s String Project and is director of elementary orchestras for Redlands Unified School District.
Margaret Winter, flute, received her master’s degree in audiology from the U of R and, in addition to performing chamber music, sings with the Ensemble XXI group, which offers monthly Choral Evensong at the University.
Irmengard Jennings, harpsichord and piano, holds bachelor of music degrees in organ performance and music education as well as a master of music degree in organ performance from the U of R.
Lynette Kobernik, new to the group, also received her bachelors and masters degrees in oboe performance from the U of R.
“This particular group is a natural to extend this invitation to as three of the members have been constants in supporting Trinity’s liturgical needs for many years, “ said Linda Apmadoc, a member of the church’s Music Missional Objective Committee.
“We are happy to provide them a lovely setting and a gracious audience with whom they can share their love and expertise for music performance.”
“This concert will be Baroque in flavor with some new pieces to pique our listeners’ interest,” Long said.
“The group likes to introduce new musical origins and composers, but at the same time we love to include our own personal ‘wish-list’, or ‘bucket- list’ compositions, and we never regret when we do so.”
A garden reception will follow the program. Trinity Episcopal is at 419 S. Fourth Street, Redlands. For more information, call (909) 793-2014.
