EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin Eau Claire will host a guest artist recital with Julie Elhard on cello and viola da gamba at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 22 in Phillips Recital Hall of the Haas Fine Arts Center.

The recital will begin with Diego Oritz's "Recercada Segunda — La Spagna" and "Recercada Segunda — Passamezzos Moderno and Antico" followed by Tobias Hume's "The Spirit of Gambo." Other selections will include "Divisions for Two Bass Viols in G" by Christopher Simpson, "Les Folies d'Espagne" by Marin Marais and "Chaconne 'La Buisson'" by Antoine Forqueray. More information about the performance can be found in the recital program.

Elhard, who performs regularly with Lyra Baroque Orchestra in the Twin Cities, has taught at workshops in Minnesota, Wisconsin and at the Viola da Gamba Society of America's national Conclaves. Currently, she teaches viola da gamba at the Saint Paul Conservatory of Music where she has created a Suzuki-style program for children to learn the viola da gamba.

Elhard has appeared as a soloist and chamber musician, making several appearances with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, including performing Bach's St. Matthew Passion under the direction of Nicholas McGegan. She has been a guest artist with Apollo's Fire in Cleveland and is a founding member of Violes Egales and Glorious Revolution Baroque. Elhard was awarded a Jerome Foundation grant to study vielle and early string playing with Margriet Tindemans and received a Performing Artist Certificate from the Royal Conservatory of Music in the Netherlands.

The guest artist recital is free and open to the public.
