The concert program by La Fiocco—the Baroque ensemble that performs on period instruments—is a celebration of the early settlers of what are today the states of New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Beginning with music heard at the court of James I, during whose reign both the Halve Maen (Half Moon) and the Mayflower departed England for North America, this concert will also present music of the Dutch Republic (settlement of Pavonia), New Sweden (parts of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware), and after the English fleet captured all the lands of New Netherland in 1664. La Fiocco commemorates these early settlers, and then continues with songs of the American Revolution and the early Federal period, when Philadelphia was the nation’s temporary capital.
