Massimo Ossi, Professor of Musicology in the Jacobs School of Music, will discuss violinist Giovanni Battista Viotti’s friendship and collaborations with his patron, Margaret Chinnery. Professor Ossi’s presentation will be followed by a performance by students from the Jacobs School of Music. The music program will include a quartet for flute and strings and a cello duet, representing the kinds of chamber music Viotti composed for Mrs. Chinnery’s salon and private entertainment.

This program is presented in conjunction with the IU Art Museum’s special installation Three Remarkable Women: Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun, Margaret Chinnery, and Stéphanie de Genlis.
