Baroque Artists of Shreveport at St Marks Cathedral Sunday Jan. 15, 2012 @ 3:00 PM

BAS will present another performance in its series of Baroque Concerts this Sunday Jan. 15 at St Marks Cathedral in Shreveport. 3:00 PM

From the blog of Robert Trudeau:

" . . . . . Concertos from Bach, Buxtehude, Handel, Telemann and Vivaldi will be performed by the Baroque Artists of Shreveport on Sun, Jan 15, 3 pm. This concert features 11 professional musicians, says Ruth Drummond.

Horace English, bass-baritone, Sally Horak, flute, Theresa Zale Bridges, oboe, Douglas Bakenhus, bassoon, Laura Crawford, violin, Dan Santelices, violin, Elizabeth Grondin, violin, Ruth Drummond, cello and Gay Grosz and Cathy DeRousse, harpsichord-continuo. . . . . . . "

sjwr  . . . . . One of the perks I look forward to at St Marks is the "concert in the round" seating in the choir loft from which one can get an up close and personal view of the concert artists.

See you there on Sunday
the performance is free and open to the public
