Chicago Sun-Times Writes of Music Professor's "Impeccable" Performance

November 14, 2002

November 14, 2002, Greencastle, Ind. - A Chicago performance by Ars Antigua, a period-instrument ensemble that includes Allison Guest Edberg, part-time assistant professor of music at DePauw University, was reviewed by the Chicago Sun-Times in a November 11 story headlined "A hidden treasure sparkles." Writing two days after the concert, the newspaper's classical music critic, Wynne Delacoma, notes of the DePauw violinist, "Edberg's solo, Telemann's Fantasy No. 7, was impeccable, with unerring intonation and an austere beauty in the second half."

The critic states that those who gathered for the "standing-room only concert" at Quigley Seminary were treated to "a brief but bracing musical encounter... Ars Antigua advertised themselves as more than custodians of a precious flame. Their pace was lively and full of fast-paced detail, more buoyant dance than solemn processional. Ideal music for an urbane Saturday afternoon," Delacoma writes.
