     The Season Finale, Music from the Library of Thomas Jefferson, takes place July 11.  Music was an important part of Thomas Jefferson’s life.  He played violin as a boy and even attempted mastery in his early years at Monticello. He and his wife also studied fortepiano with an Italian violinist and harpsichordist who lived nearby.  Years later in Paris, Jefferson expressed a great love of all the music he heard there. Not surprisingly, a number of gems by well-known composers were preserved in his library. The engaging soprano Sharon Baker will appear with violinist Daniel Stepner and harpsichordist Michael Sponseller in bringing you selections of Jefferson’s favorite music.
