ScheckMate: Early music concert

Italian music of the middle-to-late Baroque period will come to the Scarborough Public Library with a special performance of The Presence of the Past by ScheckMate. With Raffael Scheck on cello and Timothy Burris on lute and guitar, ScheckMate will revive music of the past that suggests the future through works including Giovanni Bononcini. By way of 19th-century works of transition including Weber, they will complete the circle with contemporary selections including Bachianas Brasileiras #5 by Villa-Lobos.

This special evening of music precedes the annual Portland Early Music Festival, a program of the Portland Conservatory of Music, being held October 26-28, 2018 in Portland. This event is free to attend and open to the public. Seating is limited. For more information about ScheckMate, visit To learn more about this event, visit the Library’s website at
