Hear Traditional Music of Southern Italy at Dorothea’s House

December 2, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

A musical journey in Southern Italy with one of the most fascinating instruments of the Italian musical culture, the zampogna or Italian bagpipes, will be the highlight of the program at Dorothea’s House on Sunday, Dec. 2, at 6 p.m. (Please note the time change from 5 p.m.). “Natale con le Zampogne” (Christmas with Bagpipes), will feature traditional Christmas tunes performed during a lecture with historical references by Charlie Rutan and Antonello DiMatteo of Zampognari di Filadelfia.

The zampogna has been a part of traditional Christmas in Italy for centuries. Its serene, otherworldly sound is both joyful and contemplative. Zampognari di Filadelfia began in Philadephia on Christmas eve 2004 as part of a live nativity program.

Dorothea’s House is located at 120 John Street in Princeton. The lecture is free and open to the public. Participants are encouraged to bring refreshments to share at the reception following the program.
