An Hour 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 20thcenturies. 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.
The Victorian brick Jewett House is located at 73 South Professor Street. Parking is available in the Conservatory lot just to the north. Space is limited to 30 for this concert in the parlor, so register early! Tickets are $10 for Oberlin Heritage Center members, $12 for the general public, and $5 for college students or youth under 18. 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. 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.
