MEMBERS of the Peninsula Chamber Musicians start their From Baroque to Beethoven series of concerts at All Saints Anglican Church, Rosebud on Saturday 3 March.

The group will repeat the concert featuring Vivaldi’s Double Cello Concerto, Bach’s 5th Brandenburg Concerto and Beethoven’s 4th Symphony the next day (Sunday 4 March) at the Peninsula Community Theatre, Mornington.

The group will be joined by soloist David Macfarlane on harpsichord for what is generally recognised as the first keyboard concerto written.

The group’s winter concert will include internationally acclaimed pianist Caroline Almonte playing Mozart’s 22nd Piano Concerto. The performance will also include Borodin’s Nocturne from his 2nd String Quartet and Mozart’s 29th Symphony.

The full orchestra will end the year on the weekend of 10 and 11 November with a concert that includes Vivaldi’s Spring, Puccini’s Chrysanthemum, Weber’s Concerto for Clarinet and Schubert’s Fifth Symphony.
