Concert #3 --- all photos by Carl Weese

Vincent Lionti (viola), Ben Woodward (keyboards), Song-A Cho (violin), Samuel Magill (cello), Jacquelyn Barlett (harp), and Douglas Myers, trumpet/horn, Artistic Director and founder of The New Baroque Soloists.

Tribute to the late Metta Wolfram, dear friend and Board Member, by WFM Co-Vice President Sari Max-Fiss.

Vincent explains the history of viola de gamba.

Bach's Sonata in D Major for Viola de gamba, Violin, Harp, and Cello BWV 1028; Arrangements by Douglas Myers and Continuo Realization by Ben Woodward.

If you look closely, you may see the pedals on the bottom of the harp. The pedal or concert harp is a technologically advanced instrument, particularly distinguished by its use of "pedals", foot controlled devices which can alter the pitch of given strings, making the instrument fully chromatic and thus able to play a wide body of classical repertoire.

Another fantastic soloist performance by cellist Samuel Magill, here with Ben on the piano performing Haydn's Sonata in C Major Hob. 6, Nr. 6 .

Bravo - Bravo - Bravo - we can't wait to be there again next Friday for the final concert.

Last minute instructions by Margaret Ferguson, Program Coordinator at the Gunn Library. The new sound system works beautifully.

And here we go: Charlie introduces the speaker of the day.

Who said, talking about classical music can't be fun?

The ambassador of Baroque Music, Suzanne Bona, reaches more than a quarter million listeners every week on more than 150 public radio stations and networks across the United States.

Many thanks to the staff and leadership at the Gunn Library, which gave us the opportunity for this beautiful event.
