    Columbia’s Musick, a vocal and instrumental quintet dedicated to music from early America, presents a rare musical portrait of George Washington, with wide-ranging and seldom-heard music tracing his public and private lives. The concert includes war songs, presidential marches, welcome odes that celebrated his arrival wherever he went, chamber music from the collection of his step-daughter Nelly Custis, dance and theatrical tunes that he enjoyed as an exquisite dancer and a theater enthusiast, a small sampling of the songs lamenting his death in 1799, and festive music from 19th-century commemorations of Washington’s birthday, including a song from 1815 that later evolved into “Hail to the Chief.”

    Columbia’s Musick is managed exclusively by Americas Musicworks, Rebecca DeLamotte, Managing Director.
