About the Event: 
Hosted at Hughes Hall, by Law Fellow Dr Markus Gehring and Senior Member Amy Klohr, this is our first Cambridge based event, to which all Yale contacts in the local area are welcome.  Do join us!

Enjoy an evening recital with Yale musical ensemble Musica Vera Duo. A two-piece ensemble, Musica Vera Duo explores and performs music from contrasting cultures of the classical tradition, including transcriptions of ancient chant, baroque dance suites, and theatrical works from the 19th century. Incorporating history, literature, and the dramatic arts, Musica Vera presents concerts that engages the ears, minds, and hearts of its audience members. You can listen to a sample of their work here.

The recital will be followed by a drinks reception (donations welcome), kindly hosted by Hughes Hall.
