The King's Baroque, a concert that will be performed at the South End branch on Saturday, September 8, at 1:00 p.m., by Janet Finke on the recorder and Dylan Sauerwald at the hapsichord.

Their first CD, Six by Three: 6 Sonatas by 3 Women Composers, was released last year and contains works of Elisabeth-Claude Jacquet de la Guerre, Anna Amalia von Preusen, and Isabella Leonarda. Dylan Sauerwald was hapsichordist for Opera McGill for several years, and is currently a graduate music student at Boston University.
