The Siege of Yorktown painting
Museum of the American Revolution

While Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson were at work 'selling revolutionary America' in France, French musicians like Henri Capron created a thriving concert scene and music publishing businesses in Philadelphia. Eve Miller, cellist at Tempesta di Mare, and Matthew Skic, Curator of Exhibitions at the Museum, team up for a talk about the surprising and delightful musical connections between Philadelphia, France, and Haiti. 

This live-streamed Sunday, May 2 event is part of the Tempesta Talks series and relates to the 2020-2021 Season Artist Recital with Adam Pearl, harpsichordist, presented by Tempesta di Mare, the Philadelphia Baroque Orchestra.
