GRAYSLAKE — The 11th season of the Early Music Series at the Byron Colby Barn opens Nov. 11 at 4 p.m. a with a performance by Ars Antigua with David Schrader.

Ars Antigua believes that music is most profound when performed using techniques and instruments from the time period when it was composed. Performances by Ars Antigua (David Schrader, harpsichord; Martin Davids and Jeri Lou Zike, violins; Dave Moss, viola; Craig Trompeter, violocello; and Jerry Fuller, violone) are critically acclaimed for their technical excellence, emotional impact and historical scholarship.

Schrader will celebrate his 60th birthday at the opening of the 2012-13 Early Music Series with a performance of his favorite repertoire from the Renaissance through Classical eras. The program includes selections by W.F. Bach, J.S. Bach and C.P.E. Bach.

The Byron Colby Barn is located in Prairie Crossing, 1561 Jones Point Road.

Admission is $18 at the door only (cash or check). To inspire early appreciation for the arts, children under 16 are admitted free to Early Music Series concerts.

Also, 98.7-FM WFMT will be on-site to record the performance to be broadcast to throughout the Chicago region.
