|Come to the 2010 Music Discovery Workshop, a summer day camp for young people exploring the music and culture of the Baroque! Join the Music Discovery Musketeer Cadets as we swashbuckle our way through life and music in 17th century France and England. Intrigue in the French and English courts provides fascinating fodder for our play, with baroque dance and music and the famous swordplay of the Musketeers!|
