The Gordon State College Recital Series kicks off Monday, Oct. 16 with the Ensemble Chaconne.

The three member ensemble plays Baroque music on instruments of the period.

Ensemble Chaconne enthralls audiences with dramatic period-instrument performances of music from Renaissance and Baroque Europe. The Ensemble's repertoire ranges from well-known masterpieces to recently discovered works.

Peter H. Bloom, renaissance and baroque flutes; Carol Lewis, viola da gamba and Olav Chris Henriksen, lute, theorbo and early guitar, bring exhilaration and theatrical intensity to an intimate chamber setting.
