The Couperin family dominated French music during the Baroque period, and a Couperin was organist at the Church of St. Gervais in Paris for almost two-hundred years. Le Grand is a program that spans the lives of the Couperin masters, including Louis, father of the prélude non-mésuré, Armand-Louis, and François, known as 'le Grand', as well as works by other composers that influenced and were influenced by this incomparable dynasty.

The concert will be followed by the closing reception celebrating the fifth anniversary of the festival.
