A Brave Barrel of Oysters: Music of Samuel Pepys’ London

June 9 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm EDT

$20 – $40

Perhaps the English language’s most famous diarist, Samuel Pepys was a prosperous civil servant and bon vivant in Restoration London. The diaries he kept from 1660-1668 provide a fascinating glimpse of life during the reign of the “merry monarch” Charles II. An enthusiastic amateur musician who sang and the lute, viola da gamba, and flageolet, Pepys chronicled his experiences making music with the best (and the worst) musicians in town. STS brings this bustling, bewigged, and bawdy London to life with readings from Pepys’ diaries along with music by his many friends including Blagrave, Young, Locke, and others.
