Baroque Concert
1,2,3... musique maestro!
Sarah Jackson, soprano
Thomas Walker Jr., lutenist
We are thrilled to announce that we are hosting a concert baroque on 
Saturday, October 27th at AFMSP.

This program of enchanting airs de court and lute solos is every bit as mesmerizing now as it was in Louis XIII's court.

Enjoy the timeless music of the Baroque era. You'll be captivated by the sweet notes of Thomas Walker Jr.'s  lute and Sarah Jackson's melodic voice.
