Enjoy an afternoon amidst the grounds of Morven for Music at Home in the 18th Century Mid-Atlantic with the Raritan Players

About this event

The Raritan Players present music that was known and heard in the circle of Morven's original residents Richard and Annis Stockton. 

Violinist Leah Nelson and keyboardist Rebecca Cypess playing an historic square piano explore the sounds of domestic music--music to be made by and among friends--in the colonial mid-Atlantic and the early United States. 

This repertoire ranged from classical compositions to arrangements of the popular Scottish tunes that fascinated audiences on both sides of the Atlantic--the same fascination with Scottish culture that may have led the Stocktons to name their home "Morven." 

The program will also feature lively commentary offering an historical perspective on music at home.

Both live and virtual ticket options are available. Live tickets include day-of-program museum admission.
