What does a painting sound like?

Many famous painters of the Dutch Golden Age created works that involve music-making: Vermeer, Rembrandt, Frans Hals, Jan Steen, Gerard Dou, Gabriel Metsu and others often depicted scenes with people singing and playing the popular instruments of that era.

How did the music of that time sound? A program at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 21, at the Evanston Art Center explores the hidden symbolism of painted scenes and present the audience with the sounds
of the 17th century.

Josefien Stoppelenburg, soprano and lecturer. Brandon Acker, lute and guitar.
