About Byrdsong Renaissance Consort

Byrdsong Renaissance Consort, based in Eugene, Oregon, specializes in instrumental music of the Renaissance.  The group has been performing together for almost a decade.  Their repertoire ranges from music of the late Middle Ages to the early baroque, and includes settings for both full and mixed consorts.  The four founding members of Byrdsong are Alice Barkan, Julia Heydon, Elnora Sears and Tom Sears. They were recently joined by Michael Bardossi on violin and viola.  Some of the group’s more recent engagements include "Renaissance and Awakenings," and "An English Madrigal Dinner," both presented with the Eugene Vocal Arts Ensemble, and "A Renaissance Christmas Concert— 2009," presented in conjunction with the UUCE Chamber Singers.
