The Concert Artists of Baltimore are celebrating their 25th anniversary this season.  Saturday, March 24, they’ll continue a series of concerts that combine music, narration, and visual images to explore the life and work of particular composers.

Last season, they looked at the life of Rossini.  Their subject this weekend is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.  Concert Artists Founder and Artistic Director Edward Polochick will conduct the program.  The noted radio personality and lecturer Jonathan Palevsky will narrate.

The concert will take place tomorrow night at the Friedberg Hall at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore’s Mt. Vernon neighborhood.  That concert will include an appearance by Dennis James playing the glass armonica, an instrument invented by Benjamin Franklin.

Meanwhile, if you’re interested in hearing more armonica, Mr. James will play it in the famous mad scene from Lucia di Lammermoor Friday, March 23, and and Sunday, March 25, with the Baltimore Concert Opera.
