Enjoy music from the time of Edgar Degas! This concert takes place after the 2 p.m. screening of Degas: Passion for Perfection from the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, part of the film series Armchair Travel: Exhibition on Screen.

The selections are inspired by Degas (1834–1917), an avid music lover who attended many ballet and symphony performances. Carlos Lopez on cornet and trumpet, and John Cornelius II on piano, present chamber music of France and Denmark, including work byJean-Baptiste Arban, Guillaume Balay, Georges Enesco, Jules Massenet, and Thorvald Hansen.
