You are invited to an evening of unbridled French Baroque music written by the men and women who were musicians at the French Court at Versailles. Settle back and enjoy the wit and drama that was savored 400 years ago – cantatas that tell legendary stories, trios that satire court life, a re-imagining of the carillon at St Genevieve, and dances of the highest elegance.

This concert features the spectacular chamber music of François Couperin, Élisabeth Claude Jacquet de La Guerre, Marin Marais, and Michel Pignolet de Montéclair.

Musicians performing on this concert are soprano Julie Bosworth, violinists Natalie Rose Kress and  Nicholas DiEugenio, flutist Mary Boodell, lutist Cameron Welke, cellist James Wilson, and harpsichordist Carsten Schmidt.
