Event Type

Early music performer Hideki Yamaya presents a concert of music for lute and cittern. Mr. Yamaya performs internationally and specializes in the performance of music from the renaissance and baroque periods, on historically-accurate plucked strings. The lute (strung in gut) and the cittern (strung in wire) were common in the time of Shakespeare and Queen Elizabeth, and produce a sound with a sweetness and richness increasingly rare in our noisy world. Come and refresh your senses.

Tickets $20 at the door, or $18 in advance at this link.

Free entrance for children under 18.
