Explore the rich musical life of this German immigrant community as revealed in the archives of those who settled in North Carolina in the 18th century. In addition to composing deeply expressive vocal and instrumental works, the Moravians zealously copied and carried with them thousands of works by German Baroque and Classical composers. For this concert, we sample gems by JCF Bach, Joseph Haydn, Americans John Antes, Christian Gregor, and others.
