The Fireside Concerts

Grammy award-winning lutenist Ronn McFarlane joins beloved soprano Meredith Hall for this cozy evening. Haunting laments of John Dowland and Henry Purcell contrast with hilarious ballads. McFarlane leads colleagues on plucked instruments and viola da gamba in the lively instrumental tunes of Elizabethan England.


Ronn McFarlane
“The epitome of grace and rhythmic animation.”
