FirstARTS hosts Ensemble Chaconne

The FirstARTS series at First United Methodist Church begins its 10th season Friday, Oct. 13 at 7:30 p.m. with concert by Ensemble Chaconne, an early music ensemble from Boston.

Founded in 1985, Ensemble Chaconne concertizes internationally and has performed at London’s National Gallery, Atlanta’s Spivey Hall, The Royal Shakespeare Company’s residency at Davidson College, the Edison Theatre in St. Louis, The National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, the Bach Festival Society of Winter Park Florida, Boston’s Jordan Hall, and the Yale Center for British Art, to name a few.

Ensemble Chaconne (Peter H. Bloom, baroque flute; Carol Lewis, viola da gamba; and Olav Chris Henriksen, baroque lute and English guitar) will treat the audience to a dazzling tour of chamber music treasures from 18th century London, performed on instruments of the period.

The concert will feature music of Handel and Vivaldi, favorites of Londoners during the first half of the century, and selections by other great European composers who settled in London later: J C.Bach, Carl Friedrich Abel (the last great viola da gamba virtuoso), famed oboist Johann Christian Fischer, and illustrious violinist Felice de Giardini.

The Firstarts concert is at First United Methodist Church, 217 S. Church St. FirstARTS concerts are free and open to the public. An offering will be received for the Music Memorial Fund. Learn more at 704-636-3121 or www.fumcsalisbury.org
