Music In a Victorian Drawing Room @ Ross Bay Villa Historic House Museum

Join us in Ross Bay Villa Historic House Museum’s beautifully restored 1865 drawing room for a musical evening of 19th century composers. Gina Johnson, soprano, will be accompanied on the piano by Alex Chen. Tickets are $15 and must be reserved at [email protected] or online at http://tinyurl.com/ycoz5tlk. Seating is limited so sign up early! Refreshments (tea and seed cake) will be available by donation.

The program focuses on German Lieder, English Art Song, and French Mélodie from composers of the mid 19th century, and it includes a few earlier traditionally sung pieces as well as a fun Aaron Copland ending song.

All proceeds go to the restoration and maintenance of Ross Bay Villa, an 1865 historic house museum owned and run by volunteers.
