Brass, banjo, Broadway music on PAAL schedule


August 27, 1993|By Phil Greenfield | Phil Greenfield,Contributing Writer

The local concert-goers have always looked to the Performing Arts Association of Linthicum for an enjoyable slate of concerts, and the 1993-1994 season should prove no exception.

"We're very excited about our season," says Eloise Vaughan, PAAL's founder and first vice president. "We have great talent coming, plus we'll have a new auditorium to share with our subscribers."

She speaks, of course, of the new North County High School auditorium, the setting for the season's final three concerts. The first two concerts will be in the Linthicum Heights United Methodist Church.

PAAL's season will open at the church on Oct. 17, with a performance of chamber music by the Washington Brass Quintet. Those homesick for the recently disbanded Annapolis Brass Quintet should find much to enjoy.

On Nov. 21, Evan Drachman, an excellent young cellist from Maryland, will perform in recital.

Mr. Drachman, a grandson of the legendary cellist Grigor Piatagorsky, has performed to great acclaim all over the world.

Ms. Vaughan said she is thrilled to have him for her series. "He is a very personable musician," Ms. Vaughan said. "He really reaches out to the audience with his exciting playing."

On Feb. 5 , the series will move to the North County High School for an evening of "Banjo Americana," with Buddy Wachter, a banjo player whose repertoire ranges from Mozart to Dixieland to Broadway.

The U.M.B.C Symphony Orchestra, one of the area's better community ensembles, will appear at North County on March 5 under the direction of Wayne Cameron.

On April 30, New York singers Sally and Jack Jenkins and their daughter, Letitia, will present a toe-tapping review of 50 years of American show music.

As always with PAAL, there's something for everybody. For information, call 859-8047.
