Bridgehampton Chamber Music will hold its first-ever holiday concert on Saturday at 5 p.m. at the Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church. Baroque works will be performed, including Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 and selections from Bach cantatas.

Since being founded 38 years ago, Bridgehampton Chamber Music first became known for its summer series of concerts performed at the church and other settings. It now has both an autumn and spring concert series in addition to its summer performances and events.

Drawing from a broad range of music, the concerts feature an impressive roster of musicians with numerous and illustrious credits to their name. These include its director, Marya Martin, a flutist who came from New Zealand and studied at Yale University and in Paris. She became a top prize-winner for her performances and has since performed internationally at festivals and music series and with major orchestras.

She will be joined in this concert by Kristin Lee, violin; Arnaud Sussmann, violin; Matthew Lipman, viola; Brook Speitz, cello, and Kenneth Weiss, harpsichord.

Tickets are $45 to $65, and $10 for students.
