Inspired by the French royal court's "Cabinet of Musical Pleasures," this fun-loving program offers exquisite, though rarely heard works from the ancien régime of Versailles and its imitators. Three young singers join the ensemble for two major works by Marc-Antoine Charpentier, including his sublime Magnificat a 3 and his hilarious Petite Pastorale, a satiric look at the age-old idea of a singing contest, plus works by Lully, C. P. E. Bach and Handel.
The concert features tenor Aaron Sheehan and baritone John Buffett in their Ars Lyrica debuts, and tenor Eduardo Tercero.
A pre-concert lecture begins at 5:15 pm.
