About this Performance
It’s 1740, and coffee houses are the places to hear music, whether in the trading center of Leipzig or in Damascus, one of the world’s oldest cities. Experience the visual splendor, music, and contemporary tales of these two historic locales, as presented by Canada’s leading period-instrument ensemble and guest artists.
