Fall 2017 Baroque Around The World

Submitted by admin on Sun, 02/18/2018 - 20:01

The Fall 2017 program featured works from around the world, seven countries and five languages. We had a great time with this concert and people were quite pleased. 

It seems that our followers like the Baroque period and the program contained pieces that are seldom performed. See the program at this link.

Our Baroque around the World concert, November 19, 2017 featured Cornetto player Kiri Tollaksen. We are glad to bring her to the stage in our program of 17th century music.

Thanks to Kiri for adding a pleasant note to the concert. If you get a chance, stop by and say hello and get a selfie with her after the concert.
