New concert series brings free programs to Hopkins Hospital
Sorry to be late with this (you've noticed by now that lateness is part of my DNA, so there's no use fighting it) -- a new concert series was launched last week a co-production of the Peabody Conservatory and the Office of Cultural Affairs at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
The series of Wednesday-at-noon, free-to-the-public performances by recent or current Peabody students continues today (Feb. 3) at the hospital's Turner Auditorium, E. Monument St., between North Broadway and Rutland Avenue.
Today's artist is pianist Michael Sheppard, one of my favorite local musicians. He'll perform works by Bach, Chopin and more, as well as one of his own compositions. If you hurry, you'll just about make it.
The series continues Feb. 10th with
flutist Anastasia Petanova, violinist Netanel Draiblate and pianist Timothy Hoft;
March 3rd with singers from the Peabody Opera Department performing Brahms' "Liebslieder";
March 10th with the Brass Roots Quintet;
April 21st with Duo Transatlantique (classical guitarists Maud LaForest and Benjamin Beirs);
and May 12th, with Trio ELL (Luri Lee, violin, Laura Jekel, cello, Eunkyung Yoon, piano).
