Picardy Players

The Picardy Players was formed in 2023 to present early music and contemporary compositions side-by-side on historical instruments through multi-sensory storytelling experiences. In their performances they revive microtonal tuning systems from Renaissance Italy to transport the audience to a mysterious sonic realm.

They are a flexible ensemble made up of:

  • Mariana Rodrigues soprano

  • Emma van der Scheer mezzo-soprano

  • Robert Folkes tenor

  • Allyn Wu baritone

  • Madison Marshall viola

  • Elizabeth van ’t Voort viola

  • Lizzie Knatt recorders

  • Philip Turner lute

  • Bonnie Scott triple harp

  • James Batty harpsichord/composer
