For many years, Pro Musica Rara has warmed up the winter with a program called "SuperBach Sunday." It's an occasion when the ensemble brings out some of its most appealing repertoire from the baroque era, played by some of its best musicians. Among this year's featured works are one of Bach's brilliant Brandenburg Concertos and a suite from Telemann's Don Quixote, colorful music inspired by the Cervantes novel.
Cellist and Pro Musica artistic director Allen Whear and recorder soloist Gwyn Roberts are among the performers in this trip down an 18th-century memory lane.
The concert is at 3:30 p.m. Sunday at Center for the Arts, Towson University, Cross Campus and Osler drives. Tickets are $30. Call 410-704-2787 or go to promusicarara.org.
