DAVIDSON – The North Carolina Baroque Orchestra brings images of softly falling snow to its audience’s mind with its performance this season at St. Alban’s concert series.
The concert, titled “Ice,” will showcase wintry favorites from the Baroque Era including Vivaldi’s “Winter” and “La Notte,” Coreli’s “Christmas Concerto” and Bach’s “Vernugte ruh.”
The show takes place at 3 p.m. Dec. 9 at St. Alban’s Episcopal Church in Davidson. Tickets cost $15 for general admission, $10 for seniors and children younger than 12 get in free.
There will be an opportunity to meet the artists after the performance.
The North Carolina Baroque Orchestra was founded in August 2011 by sisters and musical colleagues, Frances Blaker and Barbara Blaker Krumdieck.
The orchestra, led by concertmaster David Wilson, consists of 20-25 musicians performing on period instruments.
The orchestra has performed throughout North Carolina. Its winter schedule includes a live radio broadcast on WDAV Classical Radio.
