Northwest Sinfonietta performs a “Bach in the Ballroom” concert Dec. 22. There will be two shows; one at 4 p.m. and one at 7:30 p.m. Bring your family to celebrate the holiday season with the Sinfonietta family. NWS co-founder and harpsichordist Kathryn Habedank joins members of the orchestra in a Baroque program of Bach and Vivaldi, performed for the first time in the historic ambience of the Courthouse Square Ballroom (1102 A St #438, Tacoma). Co-concertmaster Denise Dillenbeck, oboist Shannon Spicciati, and bassoonist Francine Peterson lead this unconducted program and are featured in solo concertos. The performance concludes with musicians joining together for Bach’s sublime first Orchestral Suite. Program includes Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 3, Concerto for Violin, Oboe and Strings, and Orchestral Suite No. 1, as well as Vivaldi’s Bassoon Concerto in E minor. Tickets are $40 general, $10 for students 20 and younger, and $20 for audiences 21-35 years old. Info: www.northwestsinfonietta.org
