The sound of church bells marks the passage of time or brings people together for community, celebration, or comfort. Music can be inspired by the beauty of the world around us. Or it might tell of the challenges we face, our failures and triumphs.

Music reflects our lives and world in myriad ways. In this program, Marais' work evokes church bells in the streets of Paris. The story of Don Quixote, here with music by Telemann, tells of the human struggle with ideals and reality. And J.S. Bach, with the achingly beautiful "Ich habe genug," touches on our need for meaning, comfort and solace.

Curated by Idalynn Besser, this program is dedicated the memory of Kristen Adair Jacobs, with music chosen based on her life and memory. We hope you will join us for a program of beautiful Baroque music as we reflect on how artists, friends, performers, and listeners interact in the world through music.
