The Baltimore Chamber Orchestra wrapped up its 17th season Wednesday evening with a pronounced Celtic accent. Never mind that the program at Goucher College's Kraushaar Auditorium began with Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 5; you could probably argue that, in spirit at least, the third movement owes a little something to the folksy gigue. Otherwise, the concert was steeped in the tuneful directness of music from the British Isles and, by extension, Nova Scotia. The latter land was particularly well-represented.

If you wanted to pigeonhole flutist Chris Norman, it would be tempting to describe him as a "classical crossover" musician. On the one hand, he's extremely capable on both the modern flute and the older wooden flute and has performed everything from early music to the work of contemporary composers. On the other, he's also a celebrated folk musician who has demonstrated his command of the Celtic idiom for decades in concert halls and ceilis. And when he plays a piece such as Brian Christopher Packham's "Cape Breton Concerto" -- which he performs this evening with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra -- he draws on the best of both worlds.

Baltimore-based Helicon is back with its 19th annual Winter Solstice Concert. The group no longer tours, so the annual show is a reunion of sorts. Robin Bullock, Ken Kolodner and Chris Norman make up Helicon, and despite their busy solo careers, they find time to reunite and perform their December show every year. When asked what brings the group together for this one performance, Kolodner says, "People want us to do it, and it's still a lot of fun for us." Kolodner plays the hammered dulcimer and fiddle, Norman plays the tin whistle and wooden flutes, and Bullock plays guitar, citern and mandolin.

Not that the music is all happy; a wistful quality prevails in parts.
