Pro Musica features Chatham Baroque trio

JOPLIN, Mo. — Baroque-period music of the 17th and 18th centuries is personified as much by the virtuosic technique as the instruments, and the three members of Chatham Baroque know that first hand.

Comprised of Andrew Fouts on baroque violin, Patricia Halverson on viola da gamba and Scott Pauley on theorbo and baroque guitar, the trio will present a program played on period instruments that emphasizes one of the major cultural changes of the Baroque period, where the age of reason began to sound reasonable, and beliefs in magic and alchemy started to wane.

The selections are based in the vein of Òstylus fantasticus,Ó according to program notes, and is exemplified by composers such as Antonio Bertali.

Based in Pittsburgh, Penn., the trio has played around the world and released seven full-length albums that have earned critical acclaim. The trio will perform at 7 p.m. Thursday at First Community Church, located at 2007 E. 15th St. The appearance is presented by Pro Musica Joplin and sponsored in part by the Bramlage Family Foundation, Leggett and Platt and the Missouri Arts Council.

Details: 417-625-1822.
