Timeless Concerts Presents an Evening at Downton Abbey

Many are sad that the Downton Abbey series on PBS is ending! Chamber music ensembles, such as our trio, performed often in the parlors of homes like Downton Abbey. During the late Edwardian era the series portrays, there was much rich, romantic music composed in London, by composers such as William Hurlstone (1876-1906), a pianist, composer and teacher at the Royal Academy of Music in London. His composition style reflected his love of Brahms and Schubert. Timeless Concerts will perform Hurlstone’s trio in G. Also popular at the time, composer Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958), wrote beautiful songs that will be sung by their tenor, Don O’Neal LeBlanc, and soprano Judith Rodriguez. The musicians will be in period costume and invite you to come dressed from the era as well.
