November 17, 1998|By Karin Remesch

Classical instrumental chamber music ensembles have until Friday to enter preliminary audition tapes for the 1999 Baltimore Chamber Music Awards.

The annual competition was launched in 1988 by Laura Burrows-Jackson and the Mayor's Advisory Committee on Art Culture to provide recognition and financial support to members of the chamber music community. Each year, monetary awards are offered to a maximum of three ensembles which will be selected at live auditions by a jury of prominent musicians.

The final round of competition will be held before an audience Feb. 6 in the Miriam A. Friedberg Concert Hall at Johns Hopkins University's Peabody Conservatory of Music. The winning ensembles will perform next summer at Artscape, a Baltimore arts festival.

In order to compete, at least half of each ensemble's members must reside in Maryland. For an entry application, call 410-396-4575.
