Baroque band plays Alpine County library

Dream Spirit Baroque Band will perform a Winter Celebration Concert from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Feb. 1 at Alpine County Library in Markleeville, Calif.

Sponsored by Friends of Alpine County Library, the concert is designed to be a cure for the mid-winter blahs. The band performs light-hearted music in a variety of styles from many different cultures and eras. Selections include classical, baroque, Celtic, Renaissance, pop, ethnic and folk chamber music from around the world.

The four local musicians play an original mix of instruments. Performers are Jack Shipley, hammer dulcimer (sounds like a harpsichord) and recorder; Jon Smart guitar; Suzanne Stone, cello; and Diana Woodbury, violin. Their sound has been described as “hip” chamber music.

Dream Spirit has been together for two years. They perform at local coffeehouses, art show openings, community events, and public concerts as well as private parties, weddings and celebrations.

Sponsored by Friends of Alpine County Library, a $5 donation is suggested. Refreshments will be served during intermission.

Alpine County Library is located in Markleeville at 270 Laramie St. (From Highway 89 in Markleeville turn right on Montgomery Street for one-third mile. The library is on the left). For more information call (530) 694-2120 in Markleeville or (530) 544-7036 in South Lake Tahoe.
