Event Details

Featuring Cape Breton fiddler David Greenberg. Come away with us on a journey to the British Isles. Eighteenth century England was a melting pot of traditional and cutting-edge arts, where folk melodies blended with new French and Italian forms. We explore these developments in music of Purcell, Handel, Oswald, Jones, and others. Bringing together dance tunes song arrangements, and courtly sonatas this program truly has delights in store for everyone.
