Elizabethan Consort


The University of St. Joseph in West Hartford hosts an outdoor Shakespeare festival every summer.  Before one of last weekend's performances, the Elizabethan Consort performed.  They are an a cappella quartet.  This singer was particularly expressive.

This post provides an appropriate balance to yesterday's photo of athletes. If I tried to sing in public, the results would be worse than if I tried to play basketball, and my basketball skills at this point would be pathetic.

Hi Jack, dropping in from a visit to a fellow blog, From Lois' Hands and had an enjoyable visit to your blog looking at some recent posts. I have never had much luck with fireworks and enjoyed your recent post. My husband, Pat (Grenville on our blog) is a huge train fan so we are already planning a future visit to the Georgia Railroad Museum that Lois posted about. Please feel free to drop into our blogspot for a visit anytime.

Forgot to mention that we have been to the Essex train ride in CT and visited the Mt Washington cog RR but it was too overcast on the day we were there. Have you been to the Great Smokey RR in Bryson City, NC?

Looks like you caught her in mid-note.

Great series of portraits, Jack!

These are just great Jack!

What character! Love these images. I bet this was a fun person to see and hear in person.

Great action shots of her in performance mode.

You did catch some great expression here Jack, looks like she hit the high note in last shot :)

Sharon said...

Expressive is right! Great shots! I really do enjoy a good Shakespeare festival. I used to try to go to the one in Cedar City Utah every year but I haven't been in a while. I should check that out again. They do fabulous productions.

What a fun, happy series of shots, Jack! Expressive she is!

What a wonderful treat, Shakespeare and a vocal performance!
Her expressions do leave one with the impression she really gets into her performance, it must have been fun.

RedPat said...

You are becoming quite the portrait photographer, Jack!

VP said...

She is absolutely perfect for the role!

Karl Demetz said...

She certainly has a wonderful voice, beautiful portraits, Jack!

I think I would have enjoyed this. I happen to love Elisabethan music.

Terrific portrait shots. You can almost hear her singing in just a few frames...

Kay said...

Looks like you captured one of those wonderful performers whose faces are as interesting as their singing. And doesn't that make for an even better performance? Nice portraits!

She looks like she really lives the part she portrays in song.

Randy said...

Excellent shots!

An outdoor Shakespearean festival? I'm envious!
