Asheville Baroque Concerts celebrates Bastille Day July 14-15

Press release from Asheville Baroque Concerts:

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?

Saturday, July 14, 7:30 p.m., Oakley United Methodist Church, Asheville.
Sunday, July 15, 3 p.m., Carolina Music Museum, Greenville.
Tickets available at the door: $20 (+ fees and applicable tax)
