Arcadian Delights - fête galante, a pastoral garden party
Del Rey, near Playa Vista
Sat, September 30, 2023 3:30 PM, PDT
Imagine attending a fête galante, a pastoral garden party, like that in the court of Louis XIV in the 18th century. Our garden sets to backdrop for Part 1, performed on quintessential pastoral instruments - musette (French baroque bagpipe) and vielle à roue (French baroque hurdy gurdy), performed on original restored 18th century instruments, a unique opportunity to hear the music as it actually sounded when these instruments were made. For Part 2, we continue in our living room performing pastoral chamber music, featuring Marischka Hopcroft (French harpsichord), Bruce Teter (musette, recorders), Curtis Berak (vielle à roue), Marylin Winkle (viola da gamba), Carolyn Beck (Baroque bassoon), Mark Walter (recorders, percussion), and Lewis Johnson (bass-baritone voice).
Music starts promptly at 4:00 PM
