Concerts by the Baroque Artists of Shreveport bring a touch of Europe to this region. St Mark's Cathedral is grand and historic enough in style to evoke the original sites and performances. The musicians are top drawer.

Sun at 3 pm the season's first concert by the Baroque Artists presents the music of Loeillet, Telemann, Handel and Vivaldi.

The musicians include
Laura Crawford, violin
Dan Santelices, violin and viola
Sally Horak, flute
Theresa Zale, oboe
Anne Marie Power, bassoon
Ruth Drummond, cello
Donald Smith and Hollice Watson, harpsichord and continuo

A consumer's note: I prefer to be as close to the front as possible in order to minimize the stone hall's reverberation. If you sit in the middle you may find a considerable sustain of the notes played by the ensemble. That may be agreeable to you. Or not.

Sun, Sept 23
3 pm
No charge.
St Mark's; corner of King's Hwy and Fairfield Ave.
