Le Salon de Musique de Marie Antoinette
June 7, 2022 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM$30 – $150
As the daughter of Empress Maria Theresa of Austria, Marie Antoinette had an extraordinary education in music and dance. After marrying the French Dauphin in 1770 and becoming Queen of France in 1774, she became a patron of contemporary composers and performed frequently in her own salon as a harpist. This program brings the listener into her salon at Versailles to hear airs and chamber works of Gluck, the Caribbean-born Chevalier de Saint Georges, and Phillip Hinner, a survivor of the ill-fated colony Kourou in Guinea, among others.
