McGegan’s Musical Tour of Baroque Europe
Saturday, March 5th, 2016, 3:30-5PM
First Congregational Church of Berkeley
2345 Channing Way, Berkeley, CA
Phiharmonia’s internationally renowned Music Director Nicholas McGegan and the full Orchestra will perform masterworks from Baroque Europe on original instruments just like those the composers knew! The popular, annual Family Concert is a FREE event designed for children ages 4-12. (Older students are welcome.) This lively, hour long presentation with visual aids will include an opportunity for the audience to sing or play their own instruments alongside the Orchestra in the Grand Finale. After the concert, Orchestra musicians will demonstrate their fascinating instruments up close and answer questions. Young musicians with some playing experience may try full sized period strings, harpsichord, or flute, thanks to generous loans from Ifshin Violins and Music Sources!
Ticket reservations required.

Gonzalo Ruiz and a budding musician play the (same!) oboe during the Family Concert in 2014. Philharmonia’s Principal Bassist Kristin Zoernig captivates families with the sound–and touch–of the instrument. Play along with the entire orchestra!
