Join us for a program organized in collaboration with the Folger Consort of Washington DC as we take a closer look at the history of music in Italy from the 1300s to the late 1600s.

Robert Eisenstein, Artistic Director at the Folger Consort, will lead a special presentation introducing musical concepts and tracing the path from such great composers as Palestrina, Monteverdi and Corelli and their historical and literary counterparts including authors like Machiavelli, Dante and Boccaccio.

This program will also feature a performance by the early music ensemble-in-residence at the Folger Shakespeare Library, together with special guests Piffaro, The Renaissance Band.
