Handel, Countertenor, Period Instruments

The Musica Raritana Period Instriument Orchestra performs 8 p.m. Friday March 25 at Nicholas Music Center in the Rutgers Mason Gross School of the Arts, George St., New Brunswick, in arias for castrato voice by George Frideric Handel and Nicola Porpora. The soloist will be British countertenor Mark Chambers. Check out his MySpace page and listen to him sing Vaughan Williams' "Silent Noon."

In addition to recordings and worldwide concertizing, Chambers has the odd distinction of having appeared in the soundtrack of episodes of "Dr. Who", the legendary and long-running time-travel TV show on the BBC.

Along with him as soloists will be Mason Gross students Sungji Kim, soprano, and Andrew Stuckey, baritone. Tickets are $15, $10 for students, by calling 732-932-7511 or visiting
