Music at the Museum
Homewood House Museum is presenting Friday evening concerts at 5:45 p.m. on March 5, April 2 and May 7, showcasing musicians from the Peabody Conservatory of Music at The Johns Hopkins University.
Each Peabody at Homewood: Music at the Museum performance will be held in the reception hall of the museum on the Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.
Harpsichordist Adam Pearl will open the series on March 5. Pearl is a doctoral student at the Peabody Conservatory, studying with Webb Wiggins. In 2002, he was named Most Promising by the 2002 Jurow International Harpsichord Competition. Pearl performs in baroque ensembles such as Vox Angelica and the Peabody Chamber Orchestra.
The Rivendell String Quartet will perform April 2. The group includes Peabody undergraduates Jesse Irons, violin; Megan Koch, cello; and Jason Fisher, viola; and graduate student Elizabeth Mahler, violin. The quartet has toured Kazakhstan and Kyrgystan under the Carnegie Hall Fellows Program. The Rivendell String Quartet recently performed at the inaugural ceremonies for the new Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music, formerly the Singapore Conservatory of Music, a collaboration between the National University of Singapore and The Johns Hopkins University. They will be playing from their current repertoire, which includes works by Debussy and Beethoven. Visit the Rivendell String Quartet online at www.rivendellquartet.com.
The final concert on May 7 will feature Croatian guitarist and Peabody graduate student Ana Vidovic. Described by Classical Guitar magazine as "a bright young talent, well-equipped to take her place among the world's international soloists," Vidovic has won competitions in England, Italy and Spain, and has presented recitals in major cities in Canada, the United States and Europe. She studies with Manuel Barrueco at the Peabody Conservatory. Digital photos are available at her Web site, www.anavidovic.com/opening.html.
