Event Notes


Summer Baroque in the Trees is a 2-day concert series that grew from a desire to keep presenting concerts during the Covid-19 pandemic. We learned that it was safer to attend events outside - and Summer Baroque in the Trees was born! Come and sit amongst the arbutus and Douglas firs, watch the deer saunter by, and enjoy some beautiful baroque music.

The Gallo Chamber Players violin trio is Majka Demcak, Rebecca Ruthven, and Jiten Beairsto. Their concert Crossroads & Consolations will include the rarely-performed Sonata for Three violins by Austrian composer Johann Joseph Fux, the Adagio from the “Die Relenge” (“Tree Frog”) Violin Concerto by Georg Friedrich Telemann, the virtuosic Violin Concerto by Italian composer Francesco Durante, and a new set of pieces entitled "Consolations" by Rebecca Nelson, which travels seamlessly between baroque, folk, and contemporary classical music.

Bring a lawn chair, no dogs, please park on the cul-de-sac.
