SoHip keeps early music accessible

Concerts each Wednesday at Chapel at West Parish

The Dutch masters of Ensemble La Silva will keep the SoHip summer series rolling next Wednesday with an Andover concert called "Le Goéªt, La Force, et la Varié©té©: Music of Antoine Forqueray."

The Society For Historically Informed Performance presents new and established early music performers each Wednesday at 8 p.m., at the Chapel at West Parish, 129 Reservation Road in Andover.

The Ensemble La Silva show features Nanneke Schaap (viola da gamba), Anne Legêne (viola da gamba), Mariken Palmboom (harpsichord) and Jeremy Beckett (narration).

"The lively flames of friendship and music are rekindled after 30 years by Nanneke, Anne and Mariken, through the interpretation of the splendid music of Antoine Forqueray. Taste, strength and variety are characteristic of this virtuosic, intense, deep music full of surprises," according to a release.

SoHIP Concerts take place every Tuesday in Weston, Wednesday in Andover, and Thursday in Boston's Back Day at 8 p.m. during its summer season.

Seven Times Salt was scheduled to perform Wednesday, July 11, after Townsman deadline.
