Catonsville Presbyterian Church Music Series

You are invited to a special Concert which will be presented February 8th - 3 PM at the Catonsville Presbyterian Church - 1400 Frederick Rd, Catonsville, MD 21228 410-747-6180
David Hardy, and his National Symphony colleague, Lambert Orkis are presenting a very unusual and interesting concert as part of the Church’s Music Series. Admission is free and tickets are not required.
Of special interest: The first half of the program will be performed using a fortepiano and a specially prepared cello - this to simulate the instruments and sounds of music as it was heard during Beethoven's lifetime.
The second half of the concert will use the modern piano and cello.

Below is the program and URLs which you may use to learn more about the performers and the Fortepiano.

Is David going to be coming back to perform any time soon? We were in school together and I now live out of town and therefore missed the January concert.
