The infamous Curry House in Jamaica Plain hosts an evening of early music on historical instruments. Easy access from the 39 bus (stop: Perkins St) or the Orange line (stop: Stony Brook).

Special out-of-town guest Pippa Ovenden (Baroque recorders) joins forces with Dylan Sauerwald (harpsichord) and host Ben Swartz (Baroque cello & viola da gamba) for an evening of Renaissance & Baroque trio sonatas. Gibbons, Telemann, Schickhardt, and Buxtehude on the menu.

A reminder that our resident felines Blue & Jazz will be in attendance, so be prepared for cats on laps throughout the evening
