Music & Art Weekend: June 16-17, 2012
June 16 - June 17, 2012
The Village comes alive with the lost sounds and sights of 19th-century popular music and art with more than 50 singers, dancers, musicians, and artists. Singers will present solo a cappella vocal performances of 19th-century songs and ballads, and a concert by the OSV Singers. Visitors can enjoy fife and drum music and a performance on the museum’s antique pipe organ. Artists will demonstrate early 1800s-style sketching, silhouette cutting, watercolor and painting. Visitors can learn 19th-century dances, paper marbling, and how to play the jaw harp and tin whistle.
