Attend a performance through the HopArt program, free of cost, thanks to the Parent's Fund. RSVP to be entered into the ticket lottery. Participants will be confirmed 5-7 days before each event. Students will attend with faculty or staff chaperones, enjoy a meal out, and transportation is provided to and from JHU. Available to undergraduates only.

Experience a thrilling musical journey with Jean Rondeau, the French harpsichord virtuoso and early-music superstar who has redefined the art of his instrument and captivated audiences worldwide. Rondeau’s program for Candlelight is adapted from his latest CD, Gradus ad Parnassum. Aspiring to the mythological mountain home of the Muses, this program explores the possibilities of the harpsichord in piano repertoire spanning over more than 400 years, enlightening listeners on what repertoire written for the piano can reveal about the harpsichord—and what the harpsichord can reveal about repertoire written for the piano.

Departure for this program will be at 6:30pm for the Linehan Concert Hall at UMBC, with optional dinner before the concert. Registration to enter the lottery ends Nov. 2 at noon.
