Valencia Baryton Project will perform at NDMoA on Sunday, March 26

The Valencia Baryton Project will perform at the North Dakota Museum of Art on Sunday, March 26, at 2 p.m. as a part of the Myra Foundation’s Sunday Concerts in the Galleries series.

Playing instruments rarely heard in the region, the trio will perform selections from Joseph Haydn’s repertoire in their original instrumentation in addition to new works from contemporary composers.

The trio includes Michael Baker of Berklee College of Music, Valencia, one of the few experts in the world at playing the baryton. Joining him are Brett Walfish, violist, and Amy Dominques, playing the baroque cello and viola de gamba.

Tickets are $35 for adults, $30 for members of NDMoA, $10 for UND students and free for children 12 and under. There are also a limited number of free tickets available for UND music students, made possible by a gift from Professor Emerita Tamar Read.

While the Valencia Baryton Project musicians are in Grand Forks they will also lead a master class for UND music students and perform a Young Audience Concert for students in Grand Forks Public Schools.
