Princeton Abbey Hosts French Baroque Ensemble

Princeton Abbey and Cemetery is pleased to announce they will be hosting a concert from Les Agrements de Musique on Sunday afternoon, February 5 at 4 p.m. The concert will feature works by: Jean-Baptiste Lully, Marin Marais, Louis and François Couperin, and Charles (François) Dieupart. This concert hass general admission with a suggested donation of $15 at the door.

Les Agrements de Musique is a French Baroque ensemble founded by Minju Lee and John Burkhalter to survey the grandeur and intimacy of the musical riches associated with the courts of Louis XIII, his son and heir Louis XIV, and in turn his great-grandson Louis XV.

Minju Lee, harpsichord, earned her bachelor’s degree in music composition at Hanyang University in Korea, her master’s degree and doctor of musical arts in harpsichord performance under Arthur Haas at the State University of New York at Stony Brook and Oberlin Conservatory of Music under Lisa Crawford.

John Burkhalter, recorders, studied the performance of early music at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston under Daniel Pinkham and the performance of baroque music at Harvard University under the noted Dutch recorder virtuoso, scholar, and conductor Frans Bruggen.

With its exquisite architecture, handcrafted ironwork and breathtaking stained-glass windows, Princeton Abbey and Cemetery is a peaceful setting where you can come to celebrate life.
