On Sunday, Pegasus Early Music will present "Harmony of the Spheres," a concert celebrating the connection between music and astronomy that features the music of Jean-Baptiste Lully and Henry Purcell. Among the most interesting works on an already intriguing program are lute compositions written by Vincenzo and Michelagnolo Galilei, prominent musicians of their day who also happened to be the father and brother of the game-changing astronomer Galileo.
Pegasus Early Music, featuring soprano Laura Heimes, lutenists Deborah Fox and Dan Swenberg, and David Morris on viol and lirone will perform Sunday, November 8, at Downtown United Presbyterian, 121 North Fitzhugh Street. 4 p.m.; a pre-concert talk examining the period instruments begins at 3:15 p.m. $10-$25. pegasusearlymusic.com.
