GRAYSLAKE— Join Dutch soprano Josefien Stoppelenburg and lutenist Joel Spears as they perform music composed by some of the greatest songwriters in the English language.  Admission is $18 for adults and is available at the door only (cash or check).  To inspire early appreciation for the arts, children younger than 16 are admitted free.

All the diversity of 17th century English song will be on display as they explore lute songs by Thomas Morley and John Dowland, theater music from Robert Johnson and Henry Purcell, as well as "Mad" Songs and other pieces by John Blow and others. Joel will round out the program with solos for lute and theorbo.

Incredible music and architectural beauty combine to create a unique concert experience at the 110 year old Byron Colby Barn.  The Byron Colby Barn is located at 1561 Jones Point Road in Grayslake, inside the Prairie Crossing conservation community. From I-94, exit Route 120 west, turn south at Route 45, then right at Jones Point Road.

Performances at the Byron Colby Barn are BYOB, so feel free to bring a bottle of wine to share with friends.  Ample free parking is located adjacent to the Barn.  Information about all upcoming events at the Byron Colby Barn is at www.prairiecrossing.com/bcbarn.
