The Practitioners of Musick will perform a concert of colonial American selections, titled "Music for Colonists, Patriots and Presidents," at 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 3, in the main gallery of Firestone Library.
Flutist John Burkhalter and harpsichordist Donovan Klotzbeacher founded the Practitioners of Musick in 1999 to survey the musical riches of 17th- and 18th-century Great Britain and Ireland and the colonial and early federal periods in America. Their concert will include a diverse selection of the favorite music of Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and George and Martha Washington.
