During the 2017/18 season, the Pilgrim Chamber Players presented a concert of mostly Baroque music for the first time. Harpsichordist Jory Vinikour was joined by musicians who are Baroque specialists performing Bach’s great Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 and a Trio Sonata. Vinikour presented a mini recital of harpsichord solos by the French composer Jean Philippe Rameau. The program also included a rarely heard 20th-century work for harpsichord and strings by the English composer Walter Leigh, whose career and life were cut short in World War II.
