Music from the Hampton Mansion Collection: Eliza Eichelberger Ridgely (1803-1867) was a pioneering American heiress, musician and horticulturalist. A correspondent of the Marquis de Lafayette, friend of U.S. Presidents, and important businesswoman in her own right, she was also the owner of the first double-action harp in the United States, and both popularized and introduced many exotic plants to the country. Different authors have called her the ideal of American womanhood, a characterization reinforced by her iconic (and rather large) portrait The Lady with a Harp by Thomas Sully which hangs prominently in the National Gallery of Art and her family estate’s preservation as the Hampton National Historic Site in Towson, Maryland.

Celebrate the sights and sounds of spring with this performance by Élan Ensemble, in the ballroom of the museum!
