Chamber music never sounds more like itself than on this concert series: Period instruments and intimate venues recreate the days when the home was as important a musical center as the court or churchand the modern 3000-seat auditorium, which would have seemed to Bach and Mozart an absurd place to hear chamber music, was still a century off. Some of the stars of Seattle's flourishing early-music scene will play in this cabaret-style performance, including keyboardist Jillon Stoppels Dupree (pictured) and baroque dance expert Anna Mansbridge. It's Gallery Concerts' fifteenth-birthday celebrationa fund-raiser with cake, champagne, and a silent auction in the nightclubby atmosphere of the downstairs space at Town Hall, 1119 Eighth, 206-726-6088. $30-$50. 8 p.m. Sat. Oct. 4. GAVIN BORCHERT
