Old Barracks Museum, 101 Barrack Street, Trenton, NJ 08608

On September 13, 1759, during the Seven Years' War (1756-63), a worldwide conflict also known in America as the French and Indian War, the British under General James Wolfe achieved a dramatic victory when they scaled the cliffs over the city of Quebec, capital of New France, defeating the French forces under Louis-Joseph Marquis de Montcalm. By virtue of this victory and the subsequent defeat of the French in India, Britain became master of the world. The Practitioners of Musick will perform "loyal songs" celebrating the British success in Canada and perform, as well, an extraordinary range of sacred and secular music that was heard in the palace of the Royal Governor of New France in the decades before the "Fall of Quebec." Tickets: $25 | Members: $20
