Christ Church Concert
David and Ginger Hildebrand, specialists in Colonial-era music, perform tomorrow at Christ Church in La Plata. The concert is offered in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the moving of Christ Church from Port Tobacco to its site on Charles Street. The Hildebrands play authentic and reproduction early-American instruments, including the violin, Baroque and English guitars, hammered dulcimer, spinet and English flute. Their program highlights the formal and less refined aspects of vocals and other music from the 18th through 20th century. The pair include stories as introductions to their music, especially with its connections to Maryland history. The Hildebrands have served as period-music consultants for historical television programs and have recently released a soundtrack, "George Washington: Music for the First President." The 7:30 p.m. performance is free, with a public reception with the artists after the concert. Christ Church, 110 E. Charles St., La Plata. Handicapped-accessible. 301-932-1051.
