Due to the rapid rise of COVID-19 in our area the museum has made the difficult decision to cancel our annual Twelfth Night concert. Our main goal is the safety of our visitors and staff, and during this challenging time that means reducing in person events. We are planning for a summer jazz concert in 2022 with Elissa Edwards, and we hope you will be able to attend. More details to follow. We will refund you the money for this event. Thank you for your understanding, and for your support of the museum. Stay safe and have a happy New Year.
Celebrate this year’s Twelfth Night by candlelight in the historic ballroom of the Hammond-Harwood House.
Join us for an evening of music, poetry and merrymaking at our annual tradition! This year will feature cantatas and arias by Italian composers Claudio Monteverdi, Alessandro Scarlatti and Claudio Merulo, along with traditional carols of the season. Critically acclaimed soprano, Elissa Edwards, is joined by Dr. Joyce Chen on harpsichord and dramatic poetic recitations by Katrina Atsinger.
Edwards is artist-in-residence at the museum and is hailed for her ‘pliant, seductive, free-ranging voice’ (Gramophone) and her ‘glistening tone’ (Early Music America). The close of the Christmas season on the 6th of January was known in the past as Old Twelfth Night and it was a moment given over to mischief and merrymaking.
This is our most popular concert of the year and due to COVID restrictions, we have limited seating for live audience, and we encourage early booking.
THIS EVENT WILL BE LIVESTREAMED
