Performing arts group announces concert slate

June 17, 1994|By Phil Greenfield | Phil Greenfield,Special to The Sun

The Performing Arts Association of Linthicum has announced its slate of concerts for the 1994-1995 concert season.

Well-known for its innovative programming and for the enthusiastic support it enjoys in the northern end of the county, the association has arranged a succession of events at North County High School that should appeal to all artistic interests and tastes.

The season begins with a free concert by the U.S. Naval Academy Wind Ensemble on Oct. 8. This 40-piece organization has toured the world.

On Nov. 19, the Ballet Theater of Annapolis comes to North County High for a performance of Tchaikovsky's immortal ballet, "The Nutcracker."

"We presented the ballet once before and it's time to have them back," says association founding mother Eloise Vaughn. "This is an especially nice event for families with children."

Chamber music is on tap for Jan. 21, as the Warsaw Wind Quintet appears, accompanied by Japanese pianist Michiko Otaki.

Another Annapolis institution heads north on March 11, as popular guitarist Charlie Byrd appears in concert with his talented trio.

On April 8, it's an evening of opera with soprano Judy Tormey, mezzo Ruth Vecchioe, tenor Gary Leard and bass Casper Vecchione. "The Operatic Quartette" will be appearing in concert with pianist Renaldo Reyes.

The season closes with the appearance of another local original, Ted Brown, the talented musician, actor, artist, and historical impersonator who magically brings the greats of art and music to life on the concert stage.

On May 13, Frederic Chopin and Franz Liszt will make appearances on the North County stage.
