ARTS Pick: Gems of the Baroque Era

Under the direction of Michael Slon, The Oratorio Society of Virginia is filling an afternoon with choral masterworks that express “the best of the human spirit.” The Gems of the Baroque Era includes Bach’s Orchestral Suite #3 in D Major, and Handel’s Coronation Anthems, originally commissioned for the 1727 coronation of King George II and Queen Caroline. A pre-concert lecture by UVA music performance librarian Winston K. Barham will set the stage with historical context.

Sunday 6/2  $10-30, 3:30pm. Old Cabell Hall, UVA Grounds. 924-3376.
