Harpsichordist Kerner to entertain Feb. 23

Beauty will meet Baroque in “The Art of the Harpsichord” as a trio of musicians entertains on Wednesday, Feb. 23, in a Ke-Nekt Chamber Music Series concert.

Harpsichordist Robert Kerner of Rochester will perform with SUNY Oswego oboist Aaron Reece and Syracuse-based flutist Kelly Covert at 7:30 p.m. in the Campus Center auditorium. A preconcert talk will take place at 7.
