Lyra Consort, featuring musicians Vita Wallace, Beverly Au and Lisa Terry will perform selections from Christopher Simpson's Little Consorts and other 17th century chamber music on violin, lyra viol, and continuo. The program will also include Johann Schop's beautiful divisions on the famous Lachyrmae tune, solos by John Jenkins, and more. In addition to the music, discover why Sauternes - a sweet French wine - was so popular in early AMerica. After tasting Sauternes in 1787, Jefferson described it as "an excellent wine that seems to satisfy the tastes of Americans better than any wine I've ever seen in France."
