Les Canards Chantants

In most seasons the Folger Consort presents one concert each season in the grand surroundings of Washington National Cathedral. In previous years that concert was closer to New Year’s Day, but this year it is a love-centered program appropriate for Valentine’s Day. This year’s guests include Arcadia Viols and the vocal ensemble Les Canards Chantants, performing music from the renaissance and baroque periods. Selections from Johann Schein’s Banchetto Musicale alternate with vocal excerpts by Janequin, Lasso, and others, 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday. folger.edu; 202-544-7077
