UMBC's Department of Music presents the Baroque Camerata in concert on Sunday, April 6th at 8 pm in the Fine Arts Recital Hall. The Baroque Camerata was founded in 2004 and since 2006 has been the resident orchestra of the National Sun Yat-sen University in Taiwan. The ensemble, comprised of university faculty and students, performs Western Baroque and early Classical period music in addition to Taiwanese folksongs. Its 2006 CD, When Baroque Meets Taiwanese Folk Songs, was nominated for the crossover music category in the 18th Golden Melody Awards in 2007 and features traditional Taiwanese music arranged in Western Baroque style.
The Baroque Camerata’s program at UMBC will feature two contemporary works—Mark O’Connor’s Appalachian Waltz and Ernst Bloch’s Concerto Grosso No. 1—and a selection of seven Taiwanese folk songs.
Admission is free.
