Lawrence Chamber Orchestra readies for concert

March 16, 2012, 6:23 p.m. Updated March 18, 2012, 2:43 p.m.


The Lawrence Chamber Orchestra celebrates is 40th season with its annual Baroque by Candelight concert Sunday, March 25, at 7 at the Plymouth Congregational Church, 925 Vt.

The orchestra will perform a variety of pieces, such as Overture to “Dido and Aeneas” by Henry Purcell, Overture in C, “Perpetuum Mobile,” by Georg Philipp Telemann, Concerto in C, “Alexander’s Feast” by George Frideric Handel, and Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Brandenburg Concerto No. 5.”

Tickets cost $25 and $10 for students, and can be purchased by calling orchestra vice president Jackie Bogner at (785) 691-7824 or by emailing

The event serves as the orchestra’s primary fundraiser for the year, and Bogner said it is trying to recoup funds lost when the state cut financial support for arts. In all, Bogner said she hopes to raise at least $9,000 to ensure the orchestra is able to produce a fall concert.

When the Lawrence Society for Chamber Music, Inc., was founded in 1972 it received no public funding whatsoever and to my knowledge never did at any time during the '70s. By the way, it flourished during that time.
