While the musical “1776” is playing at the Benedum Center, Chatham Baroque will offer concerts Friday and Saturday filled with the real music in the life of Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence and the country's third president.

Laura Heimes, soprano, and Andrew Appel, harpsichord, will join Chatham Baroque for a program drawn from music in Jefferson's library. The library's contents have been catalogued by the University of Virginia, which Jefferson designed and founded.

The repertoire includes pieces from the baroque era by Henry Purcell and Francesco Geminiani and from the classical era by Franz Josef Haydn and Johann Schobert, who were contemporary composers for Jefferson's time.

The concerts start at 8 p.m. Saturday at Synod Hall, Oakland, and 2:30 p.m. Sunday at Laughlin Music Center, Chatham University, Squirrel Hill. Admission is $10 to $30.

Details: 412-687-1788 or www.chathambaroque.org.
