Vox Aquarum

featuring Lutenist Christopher Morrongiello

APRIL 22 — 7:00 PM   

Although Galileo’s scientific achievements are widely known, the legendary “father of modern science” was a member of a distinguished family of virtuoso lutenists and was an accomplished lutenist himself.

In celebration of Galileo Galilei’s genius and musical interests, lutenist Christopher Morrongiello and the Long Island vocal quartet Vox Aquarum will perform a magnificent concert of songs, solos, madrigals and monodies composed by Vincenzo and Michelagnolo Galilei and their illustrious contemporaries. All welcome. Suggested donation: $15 Non-Members, $12 Members, $10 Children.
