François Couperin (1668-1733) was a French baroque composer and musician whose career came to full fruition at the court of Louis XIV (the “Sun King”; image). On Friday evening, October 20, at 8:00, the Repast Baroque Ensemble returns to the McKinney Chapel, First Unitarian Church, 116 Pierrepont Street (between Monroe Place and Clinton), to perform works by “Couperin and Friends.” Tickets are $30 general admission, $20 for seniors, and $10 for students. You may purchase them here (online purchases incur a small service charge in addition to the ticket price) or pay cash at the door.
