NEW COLLEGE, SARASOTA, FLORIDA FURMAN C. ARTHUR INFORMATION FOR RELEASE SUNDAY, February 20, 1966 In an age when the electric guitar, and tunes to dance the Natusi by hammer public eardrums, who stops to listen to music of four or five centuries ago? Some New College students are listening to it, playing it, and hoping soon to be able to perform it in public. With the advice and guidance of Tutor Michael von Guttenberg, a group has been formed as the Consort of Renaissance Music, presently constituting New College students and faculty but actively seeking new members. What is consort of renaissance music? Tutor von Guttenberg, who teaches German at New College and plays in both the Florida Coast Symphony Orchestra and Chamber Music group, says it is simply a group of people who like to perform music of the period from medieval times to the Renaissance. 11Renaissance music is light, it has different kinds of sounds, and most of the instruments \\lith which it is played, are not well knotvn," said von Gutten-berg.

NEW COLLEGE, SARASOTA, FLORIDA FURMAN C ARTHUR INFORMATION Ever since his childhood. .in Germany, von Guttenberg has played both the violin and the recorder. It is the recorder that he plays with the Consort. Other instruments presently being used are the guitar, oboe, bassoon, violin and viola. Hoped for are such percussion instruments as the tabor drum, the tambourine, and zills or finger cymbals. Two other hoped-for instruments not even that well known are the viola da gamba, a kind of guitar played with a bow, and the krumhorn, a double reed curved horn, as the German name implies. The Consort, once organized and practiced, plans to do some private and public performances. von Guttenberg recently gave a demonstration at the Macintosh School in Sarasota before the fith and sixth grades, and reported the students were interested in the music as he played tapes for them and demonstrated the recorder and various pipes. 11Anyone with a serious interest in Renaissance music and some background in reading music and performing should call me," said the young tutor. Presently Consort practice sessions are held each Friday on campus with the first performance scheduled in about two months. -30-
