West Chester University Baroque Ensemble to perform
West Chester PA -- The new West Chester University Baroque Ensemble, under the direction of Sylvia Ahramjian, is performing on Sunday, December 2 at 3pm. It will feature works by composers of the Baroque period including season music.
The free concert is taking place at the Chester County Historical Society, 225 North High Street. Parking is available at the Chestnut Street Garage across from CCHS.
The concert is sponsored by The Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce, Chester County Historical Society, and West Chester Business Improvement District.
The eleven member Baroque Ensemble uses period bows and gut strings to provide authentic style performances of music composed before 1750. The performers dress in period costumes and play while standing, which was the style of the day.
The ensemble was formed by Sylvia Ahramjian, Professor of Violin & Viola at West Chester University, as part of her recent studies in Baroque violin playing.
Ms. Ahramjian is a graduate of the Juilliard School where she was a scholarship student, working with Ivan Galamian and Margaret Pardee. She received her Master of Music degree from Indiana University, studying with Josef Gingold, and did post-graduate study with Paul Rolland at the University of Illinois finishing all course work for a DMA.
