Surrounded by the warmth of the D&R Greenway barn on a winter afternoon, enjoy a musical program that welcomes Spring and celebrates Nature, including "The Butterflies" and "The Nightingale in Love."
LES AGREMENTS DE MUSIQUE was founded by Minju Lee (harpsichord) and John Burkhalter (recorders) to survey the grandeur and intimacy of the musical riches associated with the courts of Louis XIII, his son and heir, Louis XIV and in turn his great-grandson, Louis XV. The ensemble specializing exclusively in the field of French Baroque music, performs repertory on period instrument copies of recorders and harpsichord at the Paris/Versailles pitch of a'=392, a whole step lower than today's more common a'=440.

Walk the Trails In And Around PrincetonVisit Blue Ridge Mountain Sports [BRMS], at the Princeton Shopping Center or D&R
Greenway Land Trust for a popular guide to area trails entitled, Walk the Trails In & Around Princeton. This compact and trail guide, --covering 16 trails on preserved land in our region--, is now in its third printing. It has sold over 1,100 copies. Its profits are being divided among three local non-profits: D&R Greenway Land Trust, The Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association, and Friends of Princeton Open Space. For further information, call 609-921-6078. Walk the Trails In & Around Princeton has been available at BRMS since its launch. Former manager, Scott Morris, asserts, “It is absolutely fitting that we should have it. Being in the industry of the outdoors, we cater to people who hike trails in our region. It’s in our interest, of course, to call attention both trails and preservation. Frankly, we can’t keep the book in the store!” D&R Greenway reports new visitors nearly every day to purchase Walk the Trails. The particular artistry of this guide reflects the “deep connection with the natural world” of local free-lance photographer, Bentley Drezner. Maria Lindenfelder designed the slender volume, which fits smoothly into a cargo pants pocket without hindering a hiker’s stride. Images are in the form of postcards, which can be removed and mailed to convince others of the beauties of New Jersey. Guide-Michelin-like icons reveal each walk’s duration, canine welcome, whether or not the trail is jog-stroller-friendly, and/or suitable for all ages. Detailed maps accompany each preserved trail, courtesy of NJ Trails Association.
