Thomas Jefferson enjoyed all kinds of music, both popular and classical. He was an accomplished violinist and his wife Martha played harpsichord and guitar. The Rosewood Chamber Ensemble will perform pieces from Jefferson’s personal collection at Monticello as well as other music from his era. The program will include Baroque sonatas by Tessarini, popular songs, marches, and arias by Mozart. This is a special opportunity to hear this music played on period instruments including flutes made in Litchfield, CT, a Martin guitar from the 1800s and harpsichord. Comments about the instruments by the performers, Jefferson and his music will enhance the understanding of the works on the program.
The Rosewood Chamber Ensemble features Barbara Hopkins on flute and Judy Handler on guitar.
This event is made possible by Richard P. Garmany through a grant awarded by the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving. The Farmington Libraries will be hosting a variety of performances throughout the year as part of the Richard P. Garmany music series.
