Baroque music followed the Renaissance period and preceded the Classical era. Special guests Ann Marie Morgan and Jory Vinikur will perform an all-baroque concert on Monday, March 19. Enjoy the exquisite, harmonic complexities of classical, baroque music at this event sponsored by the University Center for the Arts.
Ann Marie Morgan and Jory Vinikur are our guests for an all-Baroque program performed on viola da gamba and harpsichord. They will appear on Monday, March 19 in the stately Organ Recital Hall in the University Center of the Arts at 1400 Remington Street.
Ann Marie Morgan is a leading performer on the viola da gamba, recently performing with the Philadelphia and Minnesota orchestras under the baton of Bach specialist Helmuth Rilling. She is on the early music faculties of the Peabody Conservatory of Music and the Interlochen Center for the Arts.
Morgan plays a viola da gambia aria on the newly released Eclectra CD of Bach's St. John Passion by Apollo's Fire: The Cleveland Baroque Orchestra. She also performs acclaimed solos on the popular Dorian CD Chris Norman: The Man with the Wooden Flute.
Jory Vinikur is recognized as one of the outstanding harpsichordists of his generation.
First prizes in the International Harpsichord Competitions of Warsaw (1993) and the Prague Spring Festival (1994) brought him to the public's attention, since appearing in festivals and concert series throughout much of the world.
"When were you last at an opera where a harpsichord soloist got a standing ovation? Perhaps the genius performer, Chicago-born, Paris-based Jory Vinikour, gets this all the time. It was new to me and delightful."
~ Chicago Sun Times
Virtuoso Series Concerts are followed by Meet the Artist receptions in which you can ask questions about the compositions and instruments, how to pursue a career in music, or congratulate the artist on a job well done!
