Great Music Sunday
Basically Baroque, a quartet of local professional musicians, will perform in the fourth annual Great Music Sunday concert, to be held at 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 10, in the community room of Congregation Tifereth Israel, the synagogue on Fourth Street in Greenport.
The Great Music Sunday series, a popular cultural offering on the North Fork, brings professionally trained musicians to local audiences. This year’s program will include works by JS Bach, Loeillet, Quantz and Vivaldi, which covers compositions from the German, French and Italian Baroque periods. A lively question and answer session following the concert provides an opportunity for audience members to get to know the musicians and to learn how music has influenced their lives.
The members of the quartet met here on the North Fork in 1995 through their shared interest in Baroque music, and have been performing together since that time. The quartet’s appearances are eagerly anticipated events with local audiences. Members of the quartet are Linda Betjeman, keyboard; Bill Packard, flute; Dan Skabeikis, violin; and Jeannie Woelker, cello.
The Great Music Sunday series is sponsored by Congregation Tifereth Israel. The community room at the synagogue is accessible to the handicapped. There is no charge for the concert, but a free-will offering would be appreciated.
The synagogue is located at 519 Fourth Street in Greenport, immediately south of the intersection of Fourth and Front Streets. The synagogue is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. For more information about the concert, please call the synagogue at 631-477-0232.
