A guest artist recital featuring Trio Pardessus (Tina Chancey, Annalisa Pappano and Joanna Blendulf) and the department of music's Early Music Ensemble.

The pardessus was invented in the 1730s for French aristocratic women amateur musicians. A hybrid of the violin and the viola da gamba, the pardessus was played on the lap and bowed underhand. It was played until the French Revolution, when it was no longer wise to be considered an aristocrat.
