George Washington Heard This! 2017


George Washington Heard This!

April 2nd

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.

  • Featured Artists:
  • Laura Koenig, baroque flute
  • Dawn Lindsay, violin
  • Linda Ottum, cello
  • Juliana Osinchuk, harpsichord
