Bask in the rich sonority of 18th-century violins and violas da gamba with harpsichord while contemplating a few of the enigmas of musical life in France before and after the revolution:  Why are there so few original French harpsichords in existence today? Were any musicians beheaded during the storming of the Bastille? And who murdered the famous violinist Jean-Marie Leclair?

ABCs’ artistic director, Gail Ann Schroeder, viola da gamba, will be joined by Jeanne Johnson and Margaret Humphrey, Baroque violins; Webster Williams, viola da gamba; and Barbara Weiss, harpsichord, to perform works by Leclair, Marais and Couperin le Grand.

Tickets can be purchased at the door: $20 (plus NC state sales tax and credit card fees).
