T R A C E S
Community Art Exhibition

This work is the result of a community-based art project, which took place during September at the Ariel Centre, in Totnes. Students from KEVICC Community College and visiting adults and children contributed in making the collaborative pieces.
 

(click the images to enlarge them)
The workshops were run by local artists Bev Knowlden and Ann Chester King, during their T R A C E S show as part of this year’s Devon Open Studios. Their work was a response to the landscape plus human & animal forms expressed in painting, drawing, sculpture & photography.
Students & visitors were encouraged to join in the community project by making their own ‘traces’ using a variety of material: feathers, seaweed, shells, flowers, plants, bubble wrap and their hands! The results on show at St Mary’s are a wonderful, energetic and colourful community art piece.

PASSAMEZZO
Music of the Restoration
An evening of music, words and song from Restoration England to partner the lecture (on Thursday 8th March at the Seven Stars Hotel, Totnes) by historian Ian Mortimer.
After years of civil war and an Interregnum, Charles II has ascended the throne…
Accounts of the period come from Pepys, Evelyn and anonymous ballads describing momentous events, including the Great Fire of 1666 and Frost Fair in 1683. With theatre songs, tavern rounds, dance music and solos for the viol and cittern, and music by Wilson, Lawes, Locke and Purcell, plus pieces from Playford.
Passamezzo gave us a hugely enjoyable concert in 2012, and we are delighted to welcome them back.

Telemann and his Friends in Paris

Formed at the Dartington Summer School in 2013, Ensemble Moliere has already performed widely throughout the UK and Europe. In 2015 the ensemble was selected to participate in the Early Music Live! scheme at the Brighton Early Music Festival, and recently performed at the London Baroque Festival.
