With their variety of
instruments and the unique singing of Custer La Rue, the Baltimore Consort
has delighted audiences on both sides of the Atlantic and earned their CDs
a place on the Billboard Magazine Top-Ten list. The Baltimore
Consort's arrangements of early music from England, Scotland, and France
speak to the heart as well as the mind, and their love for the early music
of English/Scottish heritage has led them to delve into the rich trove of
traditional balladry and dance tunes preserved in the Appalachian
mountains and Nova Scotia.
The Consort tours
all regions of the USA, has also appeared in 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. Its performances on such syndicated radio programs as
Performance Today, St. Paul Sunday, Millenium of Music, Harmonia, and
Onstage (CBC) have broadcast its music far and wide.
Baltimore Consort made its debut with orchestra in O'er the Hills and
Far Away, a set of symphonic arrangements created by Consort member
and composer Larry Lipkis.
