Los Angeles Baroque presents
Bohemian Rhapsody! Music from the Prague Royal Court

When we think of "Baroque" music, many of us think Germany, Italy, France, England… and then the list starts to trail off. This often has much more to do with modern political history and scholarship than the richness of the repertories. Thankfully, this is starting to change, and this Spring, we’re digging into delicious music by Czech composers and the patronage of the Prague Court. One of the other themes in this program is how composers processed life's challenges through music. This area of the world had suffered greatly from plague and the 30 Years’ War. And yet, Zelenka and Biber wrote pieces that would have brought these topics into a salon-type setting.

This one-hour concert is directed from the violin by Los Angeles Baroque's artistic director Lindsey Strand-Polyak. A wine and cheese reception in the Parish Hall follows. FREE but donations are welcomed at the door. For optional RSVP and further information visit losangelesbaroque.org
