OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The first faculty artist series of the year will feature the Wild Geese presenting “Casanova’s Venice,” a concert that will include narration about one of history’s most famous autobiographers, Giacomo Casanova, on Friday, Sept. 28, at 7:30 p.m., in Eastern Mennonite University’s (EMU) Martin Chapel.

The chamber music concert will include 16th through 18th century works from northern Italy, including music by Vivaldi, Corelli, Albinoni, Gabrieli, Sammartini, Geminiani and Cima.

The Wild Geese chamber ensemble includes Susan Black, violin, Nancy Garlick, recorder, Lynanne Wilson, cello, and Content Sablinsky, harpsichord.

Wild Geese specializes in music of the Baroque era, with performances that focus on a particular historical personality, time and place, says Susan Black, adjunct instructor of violin at EMU.
