Dee in the van

Dee just loves to drive! 

Van in front of Wichita hotel

It was a short trip to Wichita (if you sleep most of the way). 

Look at inside of packed van

Perhaps a 15 passenger van is necessary if one doesn't travel light

Lobby of Hotel at Old Town

Hotel at Old Town is a creative and beautiful reuse of the 1906 Keen Kutter warehouse.

Steve in hotel room

Steve adapts quickly to a luxurious living. 

Outside the museum of world treasures

Let's see.  Go the museum?  Maybe we better eat first!

Doc joking with audience

Don't be fooled into thinking the program will be dignified just because the 
performance area has wonderful temperature and humidity control.

Conference guests looking at

The conference guests included a number of people who also perform on early instruments.

Organetto on display

Of course the organetto was a popular instrument at an AGO event.

Music from the Court of Burgundy (1430-1500)

The dukedom of Burgundy was founded in 1363, when John II of France gave it to his son Philip (1342-1404). Burgundy attained the height of her power under Philip the Good (1396-1467) and through marriages, inheritance, purchase and conquest, its territory was soon extended. When Philip's successor, Charles the Bold, died in 1477, Louis XI of France took Burgundy back into his empire. Some of the greatest artists of the time, including Jan van Eyck, were drawn into the sphere of the Burgundian count. However, little of the music of this era is familiar today.
