Peabody at Homewood:
Music at the Museum

Homewood House Museum is presenting three Friday evening concerts at 5:45 p.m., March 7, April 4 and May 2, 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.

On March 7, a trio of Peabody Conservatory graduates will perform works for voice, harpsichord and viola da gamba. The performance by soprano Ah Matejicka, harpsichordist Joseph Gascho and Daniel Rippe on viola da gamba will include Handel's cantata La Lucrezia.

Violinist Sheng-Tsung Wang will perform on April 4. Wang received both his bachelor's and master's degrees in music from the Peabody Conservatory, where he was the concertmaster for both the Peabody Concert and Symphony Orchestras. He is a founding member of the Gemini Piano Trio. He will perform works for unaccompanied violin by J.S. Bach, Eugene Ysaye, John Harbison, and Grazyna Bacewicz.

The Dorian Trio will perform a program of music by Telemann, Ibert, and Villa Lobos on May 2. The trio members are flutist Anita Thesen, a member of the Morgan State University faculty who received her doctorate from the Peabody Conservatory; Lisa Vaupel, violin; and Gretchen Gettes, cello.

The museum will open at 5 p.m. prior to each Peabody at Homewood concert. A wine and cheese reception will follow the one-hour programs. Tickets are $8 for Homewood House Museum members and Johns Hopkins affiliates; $10 for the general public; and free to Homewood House Museum members at the $50 level and above. Seating is limited and reservations are required at 410-516-8639. The 2003 Peabody at Homewood concert series is sponsored by Ross and Lynn Jones, Hugh and Joy McCormick, and an anonymous friend of the museum.
