Trace the fascinating evolution of the trumpet from its utilitarian roots on the battlefield to its emergence as a refined instrument of expressive virtuosity. Curated by Principal Trumpet Kris Kwapis, this program delves into the vibrant soundscape of late seventeenth-century London, where the trumpet takes center stage alongside strings, winds, and voices in England’s regal courts. Celebrate the brilliance of composers such as Purcell, Croft, and Eccles, whose works epitomize splendor and sophistication in an era defined by royal patronage.

Join us one hour before the performance for a pre-concert talk about the program. Learn more here.
