The lineup for 4/28 includes:
- 5 to 8 pm: Art on the Spot

Kim Teter, author of the novel Isabella’s Libretto, will discuss the origins and evolution of an all girls orphanage orchestra that formed in early 18th-century Venice under the direction of a young Don Antonio Vivaldi, the colorful and complex maestro who was destined to make musical history as a great composer, conductor, and violinist. Attendees may view the accompanying exhibition "A Life of Seduction: Venice in the 1700s," on view through May 21, 2017.
