Who was Joseph Bologne? Imagine in one person the combined talents of Muhammed Ali and Prince Rogers Nelson, then add a rags to riches backstory not unlike Alexander Hamilton and you’ll be close. Widely acclaimed as the greatest fencer of his generation, Bologne was also praised for his superlative finesse and artistry as a violinist. Our April concert features music written by and dedicated to this fantastic Afro-European composer.
