Chatham Baroque will perform at 8 p.m. on March 12 in
the Carriage House at Evergreen as part of the Evergreen
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 almost 200 emerging
ensembles to Evergreen in celebration of Garrett's
contribution to the arts.
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
throughout the United States and internationally. The
ensemble'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 palaces of Peru.
The performance at Evergreen will include works by
Corelli, Purcell, Vivaldi, Handel and Bach.
Tickets are $15. 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 go to
