The Seattle Baroque Orchestra will perform at 3 p.m. April 12 in Richland — the seventh concert of Camerata Musica’s season.
The concert is at the Battelle Auditorium on the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory campus off George Washington Way in Richland.
The orchestra will perform Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, as well as works by composers Falconieri, Marini and Legrenzi.
The group’s goal is to “awaken contemporary audiences to the vitality of 17th and 18th century music through historically informed performance of both familiar and unknown works,” a news release said. Members “foster an awareness and appreciation of this music, which not only illuminates past eras but also provides a unique lens through which to view our own.”
Carrie Krause, a violinist and graduate student in The Juilliard School’s historical performance program, is the guest conductor. She’s concertmaster of the Bozeman Symphony and has performed with numerous other orchestras, the release said.
Janet See is a guest artist. She performs on baroque and classical flute around North America and Europe and is on the Early Music faculty at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, the release said. She first appeared in a Camerata Musica series in 1975 with La Galliad.
Other orchestra members are: Olga Hauptman, Mary Manning, Christine Wilkinson Beckman, Courtney Kuroda and Laurie Wells on violin; Stephen Creswell on viola; Nathan Whittaker on cello; Jillon Stoppels Dupree on harpsichord; and Curtis Daily on bass.
Camerata doesn’t charge admission to its shows, relying on donations from patrons, sponsorships and grants. Patrons are given priority seating, with the rest of the audience seated after on a first-come, first-seated basis.
