A musical evening in Chappaqua

WAG still recalls the excitement shared by Mark Kramer during the 2011 holiday season, when the executive chef, creative director and proprietor of Susan Lawrence in Chappaqua walked us through imaginative party ideas.

Kramer, we found out, was also quite the musician as well as the artistic director of Ars Antiqua.

And in that latter capacity, he’s gotten in touch to let us know about the organization’s special event set for Nov. 18.

Ars Antiqua will hold a concert at 8 p.m. at the historic Church of St. Mary the Virgin, at 191 S. Greeley Ave. in Chappaqua.

Here’s how Kramer describes it all:

“The program, ‘City of Light: Philidor, Paris & the Rococo Music Room,’ will feature the imaginative and effervescent music of François-André Danican Philidor. The instrumental artists of Ars Antiqua will perform selections from their recently released CD of Philidor Parisian Quartets and also newly discovered 18th-century works….This is a rare opportunity to hear this wonderful music in an intimate and historic setting. In celebration of Ars Antiqua’s 30th anniversary, there will be a gala Champagne reception and CD launch party after the concert.”

Tickets are $35 and will be available at the door the evening of the concert. The ticket desk will open at 7:30 p.m.
