Welcome spring with A Baroque Wedding Feast from the Grammy-nominated music ensemble Ars Lyrica Houston. The season finale program features Baroque favorites including two beautiful Bach cantatas and a rollicking Telemann suite. You'll also hear Pachelbel's Canon in D, a wedding staple that has been adapted and sampled by everyone from the Pet Shop Boys to Coolio. ALH will be joined by magnificent soprano Meghan Lindsey for the performance and there will be a pre-concert lecture from Professor Tanya Kevorkian, an expert on the Baroque period. Learn More
