Sunday April 10th @ The Jay Heritage Center, Rye NY
Drawing from the vast music library of Thomas Jefferson, with dance and song known to George Washington, Arts & Letters concerts bring history to life, tying historical spaces to the arts and culture of the era. Reflecting the world of Governor John Jay, the program includes music of internationally popular musicians of his day, Johann Christian Bach, Luigi Boccherini, and American composer Francis Hopkinson, with dramatic readings from letters and journal entries to set the scene, enhanced by re-creations of historical social dances of the era, featuring dancers in period costume to further illuminate the social culture of Colonial life.
Featuring Grant Herreid, instrumentalist, singer and narrator, with Leah Nelson on Baroque violin, and early keyboard specialist Dongsok Shin on harpsichord, this program is a collaboration with the New York Baroque Dance Company's Touchstone Project, Caroline Copeland and Matthew Ting, Baroque dancers.
