Music that feeds the soul will fill the First Presbyterian Church of Newport this Sunday, March 10, as the Oregon Coast Recorder Society performs a benefit concert for the Newport Food Pantry.

The program includes a medieval estampie, dances and pop tunes from the Renaissance including “A Browninge” by James Baldwyn and variations on “Sellenger’s Round” by William Byrd. Among the contemporary pieces will be two compositions by Oregon composers, Phil Neuman’s “Fantasia on “Faithless Nancy Dawson” and Charlene Marchi’s “O Come Adore Him”.

The group performs on a variety of recorders, gemshorns, krummhorns, cello and guitar.

Sunday’s concert will start at 3 pm in the First Presbyterian Church of Newport, 227 NE 12th Street.

Donations of nonperishable food items, checks or cash are accepted as admission. All proceeds will go to the Newport Food Pantry.

The Oregon Coast Recorder Society rehearses every week and is open to recorder players or other musicians interested in early music. For more information, call 541-961-1228 or go to www.coastrecorder.org.
