    Early Music Thursdays

     Boston has long been known for its important role in the modern harpsichord revival and in the world of "early music." First Church in Boston continues this revival with a series of Thursday harpsichord recitals and concerts on period instruments. All concerts are free and open to the public. Donations are encouraged to support the programming. The fall series runs from October 17, 2013 through November 21, 2013.
