Music from the Low Countries in the Time of Vermeer - In a program that complements works in the NCMA’s Dutch and Flemish galleries, the distinguished Ensemble Vermillian, based in Davidson, N.C., explores symmetry, contrast, and ornamentation, characteristics of both the art and the music of 17th-century Dutch and Flemish culture. Like those paintings, the baroque selections in this concert are intimate works created for close quarters.
Docent-led tours will be available at 1:45 pm before each concert in the series. The tours, tailored to music lovers, link art in the Museum’s collection to that day's chamber music performance. Reservations must be made at least one week in advance by contacting Christine Molesky, (919) 664-6785. Tours are free; paid admission to ticketed exhibitions is required.
Nonmembers $14 (Season tickets $70); Members/Seniors $12 (Season tickets $60); Youth/Students $10 (Season tickets $60)
