Free concerts at Hopkins and Goucher

Critic's Choice : Classical Music

March 31, 2002|By Tim Smith

If you're in a musical mood today, consider two free concerts on local campuses, both scheduled for the same time.

* Roman Lebedev has chosen a colorful program for his piano recital -- short works by Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann and Chopin, complemented by Mussorgsky's virtuosic Pictures at an Exhibition. Lebedev, a professor at the St. Petersburg Conservatory, is a widely traveled soloist. He took part in an exchange program that brought him to Towson University in 1989 and eventually based himself in Baltimore, but he continues teaching in Russia as well.

The recital is at 2 p.m. today at the Mattin Center, F. Ross Jones Building (Room 101), the Johns Hopkins University, 3400 N. Charles St. Admission is free.

* The Marine Chamber Orchestra, part of the celebrated United States Marine Band, returns to the area to perform symphonies by Joseph Haydn (The Miracle) and William Boyce, Ottorino Respighi's Botticelli Triptych and Lowell Liebermann's Piccolo Concerto. Capt. Michael J. Colburn will conduct the concert at 2 p.m. today at Kraushaar Auditorium, Goucher College, 1021 Dulaney Valley Road. Admission is free.
