PCMS Presents Hopkinson Smith

The Philadelphia Chamber Music Society invites Harvard alumni to hear world renown lute player, Hopkinson Smith (AB '72) perform at the American Philosophical Society on Friday, December 4th.

Concentrating in Musicology at Harvard, Hopkinson Smith is considered “without doubt the finest lute player in the world today” (San Francisco Chronicle). Since his early collaborations with Jordi Savall and the early music ensemble Hesperion XX, he has focused principally on solo music for early plucked instruments. His program, Jewels of Elizabethan Lute Music, conjures the English golden age of the 16th and 17th centuries, with an emphasis on the music of John Dowland, the “English Orpheus” and chief glory and ornament of the Elizabethan lute.


Discounted tickets for Harvard alumni are available from the PCMS website for $18 (regular price $24)—just use coupon card "HarvardDeal" (case sensitive) at checkout.
