3:00 PM Music: Courtly Noyse Concert featuring "Courtly Noyse" will make their first appearance as part of the MTRP Foundation's free concert series. This lively mix of
personalities developed the blend of humor, imagination and
versatility in the performance of Renaissance music that has become their trademark.

You might say that some members of Courtly Noyse are instrumentalists who sing, and others are singers who play instruments. Our goal is to be true "Renaissance men" - in other words, to derive pleasure from engaging in a wide variety of musical activities without necessarily being technically superlative in every area. Just like our forebears in the sixteenth century, we enjoy whiling away an evening or a Sunday afternoon with music, storytelling and jokes - and our hope is that our audience will derive as much pleasure from our collaboration as we do.

The theater holds a maximum of 93 and it is first come, first served.
