The Loring-Greenough House in Jamaica Plain welcomes Groupmuse to our Parlor Room for a magical night of music. Constructed in 1760, this historic home has been home to the Jamaica Plain Tuesday Club since 1924. In 2008, the club articulated a vibrant new community-oriented role for the House as a center for social, cultural, historical, and educational activities including a long running concert series. Music is in our soul here at the Loring-Greenough House and we welcome you to join us!

Program

Sylvia Berry Fortepiano, Harpsichord
Rebecca Shaw Baroque Cello, Viola Da Gamba, Modern Cello

The 1760's and 70's were a time of political, social and musical transition and upheaval, and Jamaica Plain's iconic Loring-Greenough House was at the center of some of these fissures. Hear the story of the Loring family's life in a time of polarizing politics in Boston, told through music of the era performed on period instruments.

Thanks so much to the Loring-Greenough House and Groupmuse for hosting my ensemble The Halfmoon last night! It was very special to partner with Rebecca Shaw and Sylvia Berry, and share Commodore Loring's story through music - in his own living room!

It was a real pleasure to play at the Loring-Greenough House last night. I love historic spaces: It's always wonderful to tailor a program to a place like this, and tell the story of its founders. I love to try to bring people back to the 18th century! The Revolutionary War feels remote, but not in a place like that! There was a lovely assortment of people in the audience, including a man whose wife - Sheridan Germann - is a giant in the world of harpsichord history and soundboard painting. It was incredible to meet him. My teacher is friends with them, and *her* teacher, Gustav Leonhardt, was friends with the Germanns as well. It was a wonderful, unexpected part of the evening. Also wonderful - an audience member said I gave her a "gift" for programming a work by Schobert, a composer she'd never heard of. THANK YOU to Emily Hale for organizing this, to Rebecca Shaw for all she brings to the table, and to Groupmuse for providing this platform!
