Mercury, Houston’s period instrument chamber orchestra, begins a new season of neighborhood concerts this weekend performing music by Handel, Vivaldi, Geminiani and Telemann at Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church tomorrow afternoon, Saturday, October 18th, and at Dosey Doe in The Woodlands on Sunday evening.

There are more details of all of this season’s neighborhood concerts on the Mercury website.
