Music for Mother’s Day
May 12, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree – $20
Long before the information age brought entertainment on demand, people found their amusement at neighbors’ homes. Guests took part in dramatic readings of prose and poetry, and sang together accompanied by small parlor instruments.
The Newburgh Historical Society is recreating this scene by hosting a parlor event at the Crawford House. The Music for Mother’s Day concert will feature a selection of nineteenth-century music performed lived by Christopher Brellochs, Cynthia Peterson, and Elizabeth Gerbi. The trio specializes in music of nineteenth-century America, developing programs that capture the unique history of each mansion where they perform.
Refreshments will be served.
