The plays and poetry of William Shakespeare have inspired some of the world’s most beautiful music.

This performance by members of the Bach Aria Soloists, including violinist Elizabeth Suh Lane and guitarist Beau Bledsoe, will feature the music of Bach, Purcell, Handel, and Mendelssohn.

Between musical selections, the Heart of America Shakespeare Festival presents scenes from Shakespeare’s plays performed by local actors John Rensenhouse and Cinnamon Schultz.
