The Baltimore Consort to perform in The Logan Series at Penn State Behrend

The Baltimore Consort will bring its arrangements of early music from England, Scotland, France, Italy and Spain to Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, on Monday, Feb. 16.

The Consort’s performance, part of the 25th season of Music at Noon: The Logan Series, takes place at noon in the McGarvey Commons of the Reed Union Building. Admission is free, and reserved parking for audience members will be available in the Reed Lot.

The Baltimore Consort also specializes in traditional balladry and dance tunes preserved in the Appalachian Mountains and Nova Scotia. The consort tours much of the United States and Europe and has held residencies at the Walters Art Gallery and the Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore and the Piccolo Spoleto Festival in Charleston, South Carolina.

“Few early music players have more fun making music than the Baltimore six, who through their performances take the position that echoes of renaissance secular music are still to be found in modern folk practice,” a review in The New Yorker magazine read.

Music at Noon: The Logan Series was founded by Kay Logan in 1989 and receives major support from Mrs. Logan. Additional funding is provided by the Penn State Behrend Student Activity Fee, and the program also receives state arts funding support through a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. Additional support for the program is provided in part from an Erie Arts & Culture Project Grant, made possible by community contributions to the Combined Arts & Cultural Campaign and the Erie Arts Endowment.
