A Baroque Musical Feast

The 2017 Lyra Gala: A Baroque Musical Feast
Tuesday, May 2, 2017
5:30-9:00 P.M.
University Club of Saint Paul
420 Summit Ave

Join your fellow early music lovers, along with emcees Maria Jette and Steve Staruch, for an evening of fine food, interspersed with even finer selections from Telemann’s Tafelmusik. This baroque masterpiece artfully blends the Italian and French musical tastes of Telemann’s time, and it will highlight a full orchestra of Lyra musicians.

Proceeds from the event will support the establishment of the Jacques Ogg Artistic Fund. This new fund will support special projects identified by the Artistic Director, allowing Lyra’s artistic leader to set ambitious goals and pursue new dreams. The focus of the first project will be a new Lyra recording—the first in over a decade.
