"La Revolution" is a harpsichord recital and lecture that is intended to be a call to action for listeners. Early music performer and political activist, Vibeka Lyman, will speak of her experience in France where she witnessed a more regular occurrance of strikes and unleashed anger. She will speak of the "spark" that is needed to ignite revolution such as the Tunisian grocer who burned himself, hence leading into the Egypt revolution. It is her belief that music can play a role in breaking people out of their confines and she plans on exhibiting this through her concert. Her performance will include dynamic works of composers such as Couperin, Chambonnieres, Scarlatti, and J.S. Bach. A reception will follow that includes a benefit for the homeless.
