Chamber Orchestra says concert will go on
Haven't had too much good news lately among local arts groups, so it's nice to report something upbeat. Just a few weeks ago, the Baltimore Chamber Orchestra revealed that tight finances forced the postponement of a recording session planned in January and threatened to necessitate the cancelation of two concerts that month. Now comes word that only one of those performances, meaning that there will be no interruption in the BCO's 2008-2009 season (the canceled event was not part of the main subscription series).
The program, conducted by Markand Thakar, will be at 3 p.m. Jan. 25 at Goucher College's Kraushaar Auditorium and will feature Mozart's sublime Clarinet Concerto with eminent clarinetist Richard Stoltzman. Beethoven's Eighth and the brilliant Symphony No. 3 by Charles Ives are also on the bill. Tickets to the canceled concert, Jan. 24 at Beth El Congregation, will be honored at Goucher.
