Musicians of Old Post Road presentation of “Rustic Classical” 

Sunday, April 21 – 4pm at Worcester Historical Museum – Fletcher Auditorium

Indulge in rollicking chamber music with a Bohemian flair as Musicians of the Old Post Road present “Rustic Classical” Sunday, April 21, 4pm at Worcester Historical Museum. Musicians of the Old Post Road concludes its 35th anniversary season with “Rustic Classical,” a program aimed to evoke “earthy” musical themes.  This program concludes the ensemble’s “Elements” season, which has explored little-known and rarely-performed works through the lens of the four Classical elements: water, air, fire, and earth. Musicians for these concerts, all of whom will play on period instruments, include flutist Suzanne Stumpf, violinist and violist Sarah Darling, violinist Jesse Irons, violist Marcia Cassidy, and cellist Daniel Ryan.

Single In-Person Tickets are $55 general admission, $50 seniors, $35 for under 35.  Kids 18 and under are free with an adult. WHM Members receive a $10 discount on tickets.
