Come along on a journey across the pond, back east to England and back in time to the 17th-century. It was a time of brilliant musical fantasy, a time when violins, viols, and their plucked keyboard companions merged and mingled and gave life to the music of incredible, even outrageous, beauty and expressive power. Join The Musick Art for an evening of these poignant, colorful, sometimes bittersweet tunes sure to engage the mind, tease the ear, and spark the imagination in the historic Hill-Physick House!
