BaroQue Across the River Chamber Music Concert with Wine and Cheese Tasting
Founded in 2000 by flutist Kathy McDonald, BaroQue Across the River is a chamber music concert series based in Brooklyn performing on original instruments in historical settings. This will mark the group’s fourth concert at BHS!
Alan Kozinn of the New York Times recently reported “BaroQue Across the River opened the concert with two elegant French cantatas — Rameau’s “Impatience” and Montéclair’s “Ariane et Bacchus” — to which Michèle Eaton brought a sumptuous tone, a keen dramatic sense and striking agility in the ornamental vocal scoring…” September 30, 2008.
The mostly-British program includes works by: Purcell, Stanley, Pepusch and John Loillet of London.
Concert Tickets $25 members, $30 non-members. Seating is limited. Tickets include wine and pastry tasting. Special thanks to Michael Towne Wine & Spirits and to Lassen & Hennigs for their support of the event.
