Music Program

“Without music, life would be
a blank to me”:
Jane Austen and the music of her time

Please join us as the period music ensemble The Practitioners of Musick presents an illustrated talk on the music that Jane Austen knew, followed by a performance of music from the Austen family archive at Chawton Cottage in Hampshire, England. The program will offer a fascinating glimpse into Austen’s private world and a picture of the tastes and musical pleasures of her day.

The Practitioners of Musick -- John Burkhalter (recorders) and Donovan Klotzbeacher (harpsichord) – specialize in the musical riches of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Great Britain and Ireland and of the Colonial and early Federal periods in America.

Date: Sunday, October 20
Time: 2 pm
Place: Plainsboro Public Library,
9 Van Doren Street, Plainsboro, NJ
 RSVP: by Oct. 15
Sponsored by the Jane Austen Society of North America—New Jersey
