Harpsichord

In 1993, after four years of fundraising, FLMF purchased a single manual Franco-Flemish harpsichord from the award-winning builder, Richard Kingston of North Carolina. The instrument is used by members of FLMF and other non-profit organizations for instructional purposes and for performances.
