Daily in Nov. Founded by Handel & Haydn Society (Boston) baroque oboist Debra Nagy, this acclaimed Cleveland-based quartet is known for programs the New York Times calls "thematically concise, richly expressive, and featuring composers few people have heard of." Tonight's prerecorded program of French Baroque music written for dancing includes Rebel's Les Caractères de la Danse, a scene from Rameau's Pigmalion, solo suites for oboe and viol by Philidor and Marais, and the earthy, rollicking dances of Boismortier's Ballets de Village.

Friendsgiving over zoom. Totally low-key; just log in and eat while chatting. Or just chat. Or just listen while you eat. It does not matter. The only goal here is to do something safe on Thanksgiving with other people in the community. We may have themed breakout rooms: Room 1: Complain about family members, politics or the economy. Extra points for starting a sentence with "Can you believe what (some person) (said) or (did)?". Room 2: Chat pleasantly; no complaining like in Room 1. Room 3: Play GHOST word game ( room. Room 4: Wear masks or wigs and speak in wacky accents room. Room 5: Open mic room!
