The next concert at Pacem in Terris will be on Sunday, July 29th at 5 pm, featuring oboist Karen Hosmer, flutist Albert Brouwer, cellist Ted Mook, and harpsichordist Gregory Hayes in a program of works from the baroque era. All of Sunday’s musicians, from three states and two countries, have played at Pacem in past seasons. They will convene to play solo and trio sonatas for two, three, and four players by Corelli, Handel, Tessarini, and both Johann Sebastian Bach and his son Carl Philipp Emanuel.

Karen Hosmer is principal oboe of the Albany Symphony, a member of the Springfield (MA) Symphony and serves as assistant professor at SUNY-Schenectady where she teaches oboe and courses in music theory and history. She holds degrees from Temple University (DMA) where she studied with members of the Philadelphia Orchestra; Michigan State University; and the Oberlin Conservatory. She has performed as a concerto soloist in New York, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Michigan and Pennsylvania. She was a prizewinner in the Gillet International Oboe Competition and can be heard on recordings with the Albany Symphony for Argos and Albany Records.

In addition he is a member of the Albany Symphony Orchestra (NY). Brouwer substitutes in the Montreal Symphony Orchestra and other orchestras around Montreal. He also served as guest principal flute with the Orchestre Symphonique de Quebec during its 2010-2011 season. He regularly performs solo and chamber music concerts in Montréal and throughout New England. As a soloist with orchestra he has performed the Khachaturian, Liebermann, Mozart, and Vivaldi flute concertos with the Springfield and Vermont Symphony Orchestras and the New Hampshire Philharmonic.

Cellist Ted Mook has been an active proponent of new music, particularly microtonal music since 1980.

He has participated often in the New England Bach Festival and Marlboro Music Festival, and on the Mohawk Trail Concerts series, and is a member of the New England Piano Quintet.
