Join La Grande Bande at First Presbyterian Church in Davenport for an in-person performance of Splendors of Baroque Italy.

From love songs to sacred pieces, and musical acrobatics to technical brilliance you’ll be enthralled with everything this performance has to offer. This performance features a varied selection of vocal and instrumental works for numerous instrumental combinations. English translations of all sung texts will be projected for this performance.
