On Friday, October 3, St. Paul's, Medina, will be host to a talented group of string musicians, Burning River Baroque. The concert will start at 7:30 pm at the church.
Based in Cleveland, Burning River Baroque was formed in 2012 by co-directors Peter Lekx and Malina Rauschenfels in collaboration with other young up-and-coming Baroque musicians from the region. Praised by clevelandclassical.com as an "energetic and talented band of string players," Burning River Baroque initially devoted themselves to fiery string music from the Baroque era, but quickly expanded to include dramatic vocal cantatas featuring stringed instruments, and recently to works including Baroque winds.
They have performed extensively in the Cleveland area, New York, and in multiple Fringe concerts at the Boston Early Music Festival. In the summer of 2014 they appeared in a Fringe concert at the Berkeley Early Music Festival, and on the SoHIP Society of Historically Informed Performances music series in Boston.
Tickets will be available for $15. Open seating.
St. Paul's Episcopal Church is located at 317 East Liberty Street, Medina. For more information, call 330-725-4131.
