Contemplative French Baroque Music in Minnesota's Architectural Gems

March 23 - 26, 2017

with special guest lecturer Prof. Alan Lathrop

PEACE FOR THE SOUL

In 17th and 18th century France, theatres and opera houses closed during the 40 days of Lent. The composers of the time, rather than taking a break, turned their attention to church music, allowing professional singers to share their talents with the faithful. Performing in architectural masterpieces created by Emmanuel Masqueray (1861-1917), we honor the craft of one of Minnesota’s great artists with sublime works by Charpentier, Couperin, Bournonville, and DuMont.

Join us before each performance for a special talk presented by Professor Alan Lathrop (University of Minnesota) to learn about the unique history and architecture of the concert venue.
