A Concert: 19th Century Songs of Sentiment

  • Grant Cottage 1000 Mt McGregor Wilton, NY 12831 (map)

People living in the United States during the 1800’s shared their common humanity by expressing a range of emotions in their music.  Feelings brought out by life experiences such as blossoming & lost romances, the death of a loved one or war found their way into songs of the period.  Popular composers who captured these timeless expressions of human sentiment provided the country with songs that have endured into the 21st Century.  Come join Tess McCarthy (mezzo soprano), David Rudnick (tenor), Joe Gitto (guitar) and Grant Cottage tour guide Tom Smith (guitar and banjo) for a memorable concert at Grant Cottage!
