The Brighton Symphony Orchestra's Rococo Project invites the community to The Music of Marie Antoinette, a performance at 3:30pm on Saturday, June 24 at Lee-Whedon Memorial Library at 620 West Avenue in Medina.
This unique ensemble will present some of the music associated with Queen Marie-Antoinette. The program will include music by her teachers, Gluck and Hinner, her friends the Princess DeLamballe and the Chevalier de Saint George, a posthumous tribute by Dussek, and two songs by the Queen herself!
The Brighton Symphony Orchestra's Rococo Project is a chamber ensemble of musicians from the orchestra, offering historically informed performances of late 18th century music on period instruments. The concert will feature Aaron Bailey and Cynthia Howk, violins; Jonathan Allentoff, viola; Elizabeth Kinney, 'cello; Mary Wojciechowski, soprano; Jack Spula, harpsichord; and Paul Knoke, single-action harp.
The concert is free to the public. Donations are gratefully accepted. The library will be providing cake to all attendees. The Brighton Symphony Orchestra is sponsored by Brighton Parks & Community Services and is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regnant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by Livingston Arts, a member supported organization.
