Description: This year's Baroque By Candlelight program continues the LCO's rich heritage of baroque music performance, but in some new and vibrant ways!

Renowned countertenor Jay Carter will join the LCO to sing Bach's stirring cantata "Widerstehe doch der Suende", and favorite opera arias by Handel. The well known Concerto in D Minor, the 11th of the "L'estro Armonico" collection of Vivaldi, will feature LCO soloists, and we are pleased to welcome the select string ensemble of Lawrence High School to perform Bach's Brandenberg Concerto No.3 in G, under the direction of LHS orchestra director Rachel Dirks. Finally, the LCO will perform the world premier of a work specially written for the occasion by KU composer Erin Tomkins, something of a contemporary composer's "take" on baroque music.

As always, the concert will be followed by a festive reception with fine wines and gourmet desserts.
