Jonathan Dimmock, Principal Organist for the Legion of Honor, will perform a special progam of music celebrating America and the service of our veterans.
An interesting aspect of historical research into the music of the 17th century is to discover who was influenced by whom, how music traveled, and how music relates to other art forms. There are many parallels between the works of the brothers Le Nain, and the music of Lully, Charpentier, and others who pervaded the stages of the time.
To celebrate the opening of the special exhibition, Pierre Bonnard: Painting Arcadia, the Legion of Honor hosts an afternoon program featuring a scholarly lecture, live chamber music, art-making activities for all ages, and more.
