Early music arrives May 10 at Theatre
The final concert in the season’s Smithsonian at Little Washington series presents the season's earliest works, with a rare opportunity to hear a consort comprising four of America’s leading gambists playing a group of antique instruments from the remarkable Caldwell Collection of Viols. The date is Saturday, May 10, at 8 p.m., and the venue, the Theatre at Washington.
The Smithsonian Consort of Viols comprises Catharina Meints, Brent Wissick, Craig Trompeter and Kenneth Slowik.
