Chamber Music Month: Ars Lyrica’s Baroque Wedding Feast

Matthew Dirst talks about some of the most popular wedding tunes ever.

Ars Lyrica Houston rounds out its 2013-14 season with a concert performance titled A Baroque Wedding Feast.   It’s described as “a program of springtime Baroque favorites, including two gorgeous Bach wedding cantatas featuring soprano Meghan Lindsay, Pachelbel’s beloved Canon and Gigue in D Major, and a rollicking Telemann suite.”

Ars Lyrica’s A Baroque Wedding Feast is Friday, May 9th, 8PM, in the Hobby Center’s Zilkha Hall, downtown.
