Music from the French Salons

les voyageurs

Les Voyageurs will present a varied smorgasbord of French Baroque instrumental music, from the mid-seventeenth through the mid-eighteenth centuries. Well-known composers such as Francois Couperin and Marin Marais are joined by their lesser-known contemporaries for a program that will be sure to delight.


Freshly graduated from the Historical Performance Program at the Juilliard School, the members of Les Voyageurs are excited to continue exploring together the endlessly varied instrumental repertoire of the Baroque.

 

Jeffrey Girton and Augusta McKay Lodge, violins
Keiran Campbell, cello
