Ars Lyrica Houston opens its 16th season with a Bastille Day program in partnership with Rienzi, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston house museum for European decorative arts.

In a reimagined virtual celebration, both organizations are offering access to educational content, tours in English and French, and other activities that culminate in the broadcast of Vive la France!, a concert of music by French composers on historical instruments.

Artistic director Matthew Dirst will perform on harpsichord, organ, and fortepiano, and will be joined by Colin St-Martin on traverso and Barrett Sills on viola da gamba. The ensemble will perform an all-French program interspersed with commentary on historical French music and culture.
