Music of Colonial and Early America
What was music like in Colonial and early Federalist America? If only Yankee Doodle comes to mind, this soirée will introduce a “new world” of baroque and classical repertoire written by native born and newly immigrated composers. The program includes works by William Billings, Benjamin Carr, John Christopher Moller, and Francis Hopkinson, a personal friend of George Washington and signer of the Declaration of Independence—and Yankee Doodle, of course. Performed on period instruments in a unique setting.
Join us afterward for a historically informed reception.
