The Baltimore Consort has delighted audiences on both sides of the Atlantic and their music has earned a place on the Billboard Magazine Top-Ten list. The Consort's arrangements of early music from Europe speak to the heart as well as the mind. Their love for English and Scottish heritage has led them to delve deeply into the rich trove of traditional balladry and dance tunes preserved in the Appalachian Mountains and Nova Scotia. More recently, the group has explored the extraordinary repertory from the Iberian Peninsula. 

The Baltimore Consort is in its 33rd season as one of America's favorite early music ensembles. The Consort has made fourteen recordings on the Dorian label and has toured widely in the United States, Canada, and Europe. Vocalists for the 2014 season will be two young superstars, the phenomenal countertenor Jose Lemos and the brilliant soprano Danielle Svonavec. 

For more information, visit www.baltcons.com. The Peterson Concert Series is free and open to all through the support of the Peterson Foundation. Doors to the Cole Auditorium will open at 3 pm, seating is limited and available on first come, first served basis. For more information, please contact David Waring, Music Librarian at dwaring@greenwichlibrary.org or (203) 622-7917.
