The artwork on the cover of our season brochure is a newly discovered painting of French origin. It was recently purchased in auction at Sotheby's. The musical instrument depicted in the painting is a vielle àroue. Shockingly, the specific instrument depicted is also under the same ownership as the painting. Curtis Berak, owner of the painting and instrument, will give MusicSources audiences an exclusive, in person viewing of both works, together for the first time and never before displayed publicly. Music of the French Baroque will be heard, and guests will enjoy complimentary wine and refreshments.
