Capriccio admin will be on hold throughout June for a long hike in distant climes far away from the internet. But, rest assured: all ticket purchases made in June for our July 27 Season Closer concert "The French Galante" will be registered with receipts being mailed early July. Capriccio's 2019-2020 Season will also be announced early July. Look out for it - it's a full run of top-flight harpsichord stars!
