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.
