Lecture: 1810 to 1860, The World of the Davenports

Mon Sept 16 at 6pmDavenport House Museum, 324 E State Street


Step into the shoes of the Davenport family and their parlor music. Immerse yourself in a world where the American Songbook was growing and the French Opera House was the place to go in the South. Enter their world as you sit where they sat and hear what they might have heard for an evening of entertainment that takes you back in time.

The presentation is free and open to the public. Attendees will experience a sampling of music from the era being discussed, and be encouraged to engage in discussion with the artists and scholars who are presenting.

The discussion will last approximately one hour. No reserved seating; first come, first served.

Speaker: Dr. Christopher E. Hendricks

You can find his biography here.
