Handel Choir has season-ending concert today at cathedral
Late June is usually not the best of times for classical music -- the regular season is over, and the summer season has not yet begun. Fortunately for music lovers, however, the Handel Choir of Baltimore ends its season late this year -- with a concert this Sunday at 3 p.m. at the Episcopal Cathedral of the Incarnation (2 E. University Parkway) of mostly little-known works by the great composer from which it takes its name.
Under its music director, Herbert Dimmock, the choir's chamber orchestra will perform Handel's well-known "Water Music Suite." Then things will get interesting as Dimmock leads the choir and orchestra in such works as the "Foundling Hospital Anthem" and "Zadok the Priest" and in choruses from such oratorios as "Judas Maccabaeus" and "Saul." Tickets are $14. For further information, call (410) 366-6544. After three years, the Young Artists Concert Series is coming to a close because its founder and director, Paul Jan Zdunek, is leaving town to study for a master's degree at the Cleveland Institute of Music. As a final concert, he is presenting the Maia Quartet Saturday at 8 p.m. in Leakin Hall at the Peabody Conservatory in a benefit concert for Young Audiences of Maryland.
