Concert Artists in new venue

October 06, 2002|By Tim Smith

The 2002-2003 season marks a big step for the Concert Artists of Baltimore -- outside the Beltway. After 15 years of operations almost entirely in the city, the ensemble is setting up camp at the Gordon Center in Owings Mills to present its main concert series with music director Edward Polochick. (A chamber series will continue to be offered at the Engineers Club in downtown Baltimore.)

Folks intimidated by the mere mention of a drive beyond the city limits should get a grip. The jaunt to the Gordon Center is well within reason, and the sonic benefit alone would make it worth twice the distance. The theater boasts excellent acoustics, which should find a pleasant outlet in this week's program devoted to Haydn. There will be excerpts from The Creation, The Seasons, the Lord Nelson Mass, three symphonies, an opera, and two string quartets. Haydn himself will make an appearance (in the person of WBJC's Jonathan Palevsky).

The concert is at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Gordon Center, Gwynnbrook Ave., Owings Mills. Tickets are $18-$25 ($8 for students and $5 for children). Call 410-625-3525.
