This glorious Program of music and dance will transport you to the elegance and cultural refinement of the Baroque Salons of France and Germany.
The exquisitely crafted, highly ornamented works of François Couperin ("the Great"), Lully, Boismortier, Biber and Fischer are performed by acclaimed artists Andrew Appel (harpsichord) and Loretta O'Sullivan (Cello). The poise and charm of period dance is displayed by Paige Whitley-Bauguess. And, Robert Aubry Davis, with his expansive knowledge and mellifluous voice, connects the music and dance to literary and cultural activities promoted by high society ladies in their Salons, cornerstones of the Age of Enlightenment.
Meet the artists at the complimentary after-party over extravagant canapés & excellent Rosé wines.
Enjoy this gorgeous work live at Capriccio's July 15 Concert!
