On Wednesday, Feb. 6, Music, Meditation and Munchies will celebrate the music of Venice at 12:15 p.m. in St. John's Chapel.
The rich musical history of Venice began in the early 1500s with the music of the Gabrieli family and the tradition of Saint Mark’s basilica. Antonio Vivaldi taught in Venice for many years in the early 1700s as well as Marco Enrico Bossi in the early 1900s. Hear organ music by all three major Italian composers. Featured works include Canzona by Gabriele, Concerto in d minor (transcribed by J. S. Bach) by Vivaldi and Etude Syphonique by Bossi.
Meditation Assistant Professor of Art and Architecture Liliana Leopardi.

Spoken meditation or poetry will complement the music each month and dessert will be served following each program. All are welcome and invited to bring a lunch.
