GOING FOR BAROQUE 'It's kind of like a season for everyone's favorite Baroque hits...but you don't need to be a Baroque aficionado to appreciate it,' shared Chatham Baroque director Marc Giosi (second from right). On Sept. 12, Giosi hosted the Twelfth Night Kickoff Party at his loft on Penn Avenue. The highlight of the reception, naturally, was a private concert by CB musicians (l to r) Andrew Fouts, Patricia Halverson, and Scott Pauley. 'I think we have a great season coming up,' shared Fouts.
