Immerse yourself in music from Season 1 of HBO's “The Gilded Age.” Enter a world of elegance and beauty and experience live music as if you waltzed directly out of a time machine. This historically accurate program will include selections featured in the series, performed by many of the actual musicians who portrayed period artists on-screen, as well as a special performance by Dr. Christopher Brellochs, who appeared as composer/conductor John Knowles Paine in the HBO series. Conductors Dr. Mark Stickney and Brellochs will also provide the historical background of the music. This program is sponsored in part by Historic Music of Newport. Registration and ticket information available soon.
