The Baltimore Consort will perform at Greenwich Library on Feb. 16.

Fond of early music and instruments from Europe? Then attend Greenwich Library’s presentation of the Baltimore Consort on Sunday, Feb. 16, from 3:30 to 5 p.m.

The consort specializes in arrangements of early music from Europe and has received much global acclaim, including a place on the Billboard Magazine Top Ten List.

The group’s love for English and Scottish heritage has led them to delve deeply into the rich trove of traditional balladry and dance tunes preserved in the Appalachian Mountains and Nova Scotia. More recently, the group has explored the repertory from the Iberian Peninsula.

They have released fourteen recordings and are now in their 33rd season. Vocalists for this season include two young singers, countertenor Jose Lemos and soprano Danielle Svonavec.

The concert is part of the Peterson Concert Series, and is free and open to all. It will take place in the library’s Cole Auditorium. Doors open at 3 p.m., seating is limited and available on first come, first served basis. For more information, please contact David Waring, Music Librarian at [email protected] or 203-622-7917.
