A Hour of Music in the Parlor
Songs of the Turn of the Century

Join us for a merry evening of song and history on Tuesday, April 11, at 7:00 p.m., as Abigail Hakel-Garcia and Collin Sterne present an hour of music at the museum. The evening's entertainment, along with some historical tidbits, will be performed in the 1884 Jewett House, just as many homes were used for intimate concerts in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Abigail sings and plays violin and Collin classical guitar, as the tune requires. A few highlights of the evening include favorite songs such as “Merry Oldsmobile” and “Moonlight Bay,” as well as music by Paganini and Piazzolla. Guests are welcome to listen and enjoy, or join in a chorus or two.

Registration is available online or by stopping in the Monroe House at 73 ½ South Professor Street, or by calling (440) 774-1700 and paying over the phone. Tickets may be available at the door, but check our website or call ahead for availability. The doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis. A reception with light refreshments will follow.
