1810 to 1860: The World of the Davenports
In the lecture, 1810 to 1860: The World of the Davenports, attendees will step into the shoes of the Davenport family and a time when the American Songbook was growing and the French Opera House was a coveted destination in the South.
Attendees will experience a sampling of music from the era and will be encouraged to engage in discussion with the presenting artists and the presenting scholar, Dr. Christopher E. Hendricks.
The lecture is free and open to the public, and presented by the Savannah Music Festival in partnership with the Davenport House Museum.
This event is supported by a grant from Georgia Humanities.
