Violin, voices of beauty

Critics Choice: Classical Music

May 06, 2001|By TIM SMITH

Chee-Yun is not just one of the most gifted violinists around these days, but also one of the most beautiful. No, that's not a sexist comment; she's the marketing face for a major hair product's advertising in her native Korea.

Bruch's G minor romantic Violin Concerto is tailor-made for Chee-Yun's technical poise and musicality; she'll play it with the Baltimore Chamber Orchestra during a concert that also offers works by Corelli and Dag Wiren (a noted Swedish composer), as well as Samuel Barber's popular "Adagio for Strings." Anne Harrigan conducts the concert at 8 p.m. Wednesday at Goucher College's Kraushaar Auditorium in Towson. Tickets are $23 (less for children, students and seniors). Call 410-308-0402.

Members of the Baltimore Opera Studio -- a training program for young singers -- have been taking master classes with such venerable opera veterans as Evelyn Lear and Thomas Stewart and appearing in small roles in Baltimore Opera productions.

This week, the singers step fully into the limelight with a production of Mozart's delectable comedy of the sexes, "Cosi fan tutte." Laurence Devlin will conduct the performance at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Loyola College's MacManus Theater. Admission is free, but reservations are required. Call 410-727-6000.
