NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. -- The Halifax Consort, Daytona State College’s resident early music ensemble, will perform at 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 15, in the New Smyrna Beach Regional Library auditorium.

Ensemble members perform in period costumes, mostly from the medieval, renaissance and baroque eras. They play replica instruments including the recorder, krummhorn, viol, harpsichord and percussion instruments.

"Often, the group performs literary works from such writers as Shakespeare, highlighting the importance of their works and the music heard during their time and within their literature,"  Pat Kuehn, a Volusia County spokeswoman, told Headline Surfer. "Members include current and retired faculty from Daytona State College and other professional fields. Each performer specializes in such areas as music, theater and the humanities."
