Chatham Baroque will perform at 8 p.m. on Friday, March 12, as part of the 2003-2004 Evergreen Concert Series in the Carriage House at Evergreen, 4545 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.
It is the third of this season's four Friday evening concerts honoring former Evergreen resident Alice Warder Garrett's tradition of bringing talented musicians to Baltimore and inviting audiences to interact with them. Since the inception of the concert series in 1954, the Evergreen House Foundation has brought more than 189 emerging ensembles to Evergreen in celebration of Garrett's contribution to the arts.
Chatham Baroque's lively interpretations, stylistic innovation and dazzling technique transport audiences from the court of Louis XIV to the taverns of England, and from the Scottish highlands to the exquisite palaces of Peru. Honored by National Public Radio as "Best New Classical Artist of 1999," Chatham Baroque is ensemble-in-residence at Chatham College and WQED-FM, both in Pittsburgh, and tours internationally and throughout the United States. The ensemble has released five CDs to critical acclaim. Chatham Baroque has been recognized for its commitment to introducing audiences of all ages to baroque music with the 1999 Early Music Brings History Alive Award from Early Music America and the 1999 Logan Award from Penn State- Erie. The performance at Evergreen will include baroque works by Corelli, Purcell, Vivaldi, Handel and Bach.
Tickets are $15 per person. A reception with the artists follows the performance. Evergreen fellows, associates and sponsors are admitted free with one guest to two concerts. To make reservations or for information, call 410-516-0341 or visit www.jhu.edu/historichouses.
