Go for Baroque ...

Sorry about the headline :-)

There are many fine events taking place this month, and in the next few days I'll try to highlight a few that strike me as particularly noteworthy. For a really comprehensive listing of regional events, I recommend visiting Hudson Valley Connoisseur magazine's Web site, where we have an interactive searchable calendar with thousands of listings!

This sounds like a "don't miss" event: I adore Baroque music and the Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts Center at Bard College is a wonderful concert venue.

BARD'S MUSIC PROGRAM PRESENTS VOCAL CONCERT ON DECEMBER 12 AT THE FISHER CENTER

Featuring Works by Bach and Vivaldi

The 8 p.m. program in the center's Sosnoff Theater includes Bach's Cantata 21 (“Ich hatte viel Bek├╝mmernis”) and Vivaldi's Gloria in D Major. The featured vocal soloists, tenor Rufus M├╝ller and bass Arthur Burrows, are both distinguished Bach singers and are on the Bard faculty. They will be joined by undergraduate soloists.
Tickets are $5, and admission is free for Bard students and children age 12 and under. To order tickets please call the Box Office at 845-758-7900
