The Rose Ensemble

Tickets are now on sale for this event HERE.

The Rose Ensemble returns to the Michigan Festival of Sacred Music by popular demand. This festival season they appear with Piffaro the Renaissance Band in a concert celebrating the 500th anniversary of the Reformation presented in collaboration with the Bach Festival. Tickets available through the Bach Fest here.

Five hundred years ago, a monk named Martin Luther set in motion a spiritual movement that would transform church music for his followers. In this exciting collaboration with one of the world’s finest consort of Renaissance wind instruments, the Rose Ensemble presents works by first-generation Reformation composers Johann Walther, Leonhard Lechner, and Michael Praetorius, as well as our groundbreaking reconstruction of a 1616 royal baptismal mass. Don’t miss this historic concert and the opportunity to join in singing the iconic hymn Ein feste burg (“A Mighty Fortress”).

Piffaro the Renaissance Band

Founded in 1996 by Artistic Director Jordan Sramek, The Rose Ensemble has achieved an international reputation as a premiere American early music ensemble. Each performance illuminates centuries of rarely heard repertoire, bringing to modern audiences research from the world’s manuscript libraries and fresh perspectives on history, culture, politics and spirituality from around the globe. With ten critically acclaimed recordings and a diverse selection of concert programs, the group has thrilled audiences across the United States and Europe with repertoire spanning 1,000 years and over 25 languages.

The Rose Ensemble is the recipient of the 2005 Chorus America Margaret Hillis Award for Choral Excellence, and first prize winner in both sacred and secular music categories at the 2012 Tolosa Choral Contest in Spain (part of the European Choral Grand Prix). The group’s concerts and recordings have been called “first class” (Neuss-Grevenbroicher Zeitung), “impassioned and brightly alive” (Choral Journal) and “engaging . .. satisfying” (Gramophone). Founder Jordan Sramek received the 2010 Louis Botto Award from Chorus America “for entrepreneurial zeal.”

Piffaro delights audiences with highly polished recreations of the rustic music of the peasantry and the elegant sounds of the official wind bands of the late Medieval and Renaissance periods.  Its ever-expanding instrumentarium includes shawms, dulcians, sackbuts, recorders, krumhorns, bagpipes, lutes, guitars, harps, and a variety of percussion — all careful reconstructions of instruments from the period.

Under the direction of Artistic Directors Joan Kimball and Bob Wiemken, the world renowned pied-pipers of Early Music present an annual subscription concert series in the Philadelphia region; tour throughout the United States, Europe, Canada and South America; and appear as performers and instructors at major Early Music festivals. Recordings are a significant part of the ensemble’s work, and 18 CDs have been released since 1992, including 4 on the prestigious label Deutsche Grammophon/Archiv Produktion.
