During the week-long retreat the orchestra works with director Frances Blaker to refine their skills as specialists in baroque performance practice. The retreat has become so popular that this year there are 30 participants, allowing for an exciting and varied concert program which includes a Vivaldi concerto for 4 violins, a viola concerto by Graupner and several pieces featuring baroque horns, flutes and oboes. The NCBO Oboe Band and Flute Quartet will provide entrance music as audience members arrive at the concerts.

The North Carolina Baroque Orchestra was founded by sisters and musical collaborators Frances Blaker and Barbara Blaker Krumdieck in 2011, for the purpose of providing opportunities for musicians and vocalists interested in exploring baroque performance practice in a baroque chamber orchestra setting. The orchestra allows musicians in North Carolina and the surrounding area an opportunity to work with highly experienced experts in the field.

Our August garden lecture series, Saturday, August 10, features Charlotte Glen, the statewide coordinator for the NC State Extension Master Gardener Program, discussing “Perennials for Pollinators.” Are you seeking beautiful, low-care, flowering plants that will return year after year and attract pollinators to your landscape? Attend this presentation to learn about perennials that thrive in eastern North Carolina’s challenging climate, with a focus on varieties that support birds, bees, butterflies and other pollinators.

In addition to recommended varieties, the presentation will also discuss how to select the right plants for growing conditions in your yard, designing plantings for maximum benefit to pollinators, and share tips for establishing and caring for perennials so they will thrive for years to come.

An eastern North Carolina native, Charlotte has studied horticulture and gardened in the North Carolina coastal plain and piedmont, Scotland and New Zealand. She is an avid gardener with a keen interest in native plants, sustainable landscaping, and garden ecology.
