Music at Evergreen opens for season

Evergreen Museum & Library’s popular and adventurous Music at Evergreen series of classical and world-music concerts returns for 2009–2010, presenting live music in the museum’s Bakst Theatre on three Saturdays in November, March and April. Concerts begin at 3 p.m. and are followed by meet-the-artist receptions.

Croatian guitarist Robert Belinic kicks off the series’ 57th season on Nov. 7. Belinic was the sole winner of the 2001 Young Concert Artists European Auditions in Leipzig, Germany, and in 2002 was the first guitarist ever to win a place on the prestigious Young Concert Artists roster in New York. He will perform music spanning five centuries, including J.S. Bach’s Prelude, Fugue and Allegro in E-Flat Major, BWV 998; Manuel de Fossa’s Premiere Fantaisie, Op.5; Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s Sonata Omaggio a Boccherini; and works by John Dowland

and the brothers Regino and Eduardo Sainz de la Maza.

Other scheduled performers this season are the multifaceted string quartet Brooklyn Rider, March 6, and the ensemble SEGUE in an April 17 concert of Flamenco music and dance.

One of Baltimore’s longest-running music programs, Music at Evergreen features performances by renowned musicians and outstanding emerging artists. Funded by the Evergreen House Foundation, the series continues John Work Garrett and Alice Warder Garrett’s tradition of presenting performances in their home and providing audiences with an opportunity to meet the artists.

Subscription tickets are $55, $40 museum members and $25 students. Tickets for individual concerts are $20, $15 museum members and $10 students. Tickets include museum admission and reception and are available in advance at www.missiontix
