||House Concert with Tim Macdonald and Jeremy Ward plus Dick Hensold
In conjunction with our Grand Ball the following night, we are thrilled to be co-sponsoring an intimate concert by Tim Macdonald (violin) and Jeremy Ward (cello), joined by Dick Hensold on Northumbrian smallpipes, reel pipes, and recorder. These three share a common love of driving Scottish traditional music and historical 18th-century interpretation that bridges the 7-hour drive between their homes in Chicago and Minnesota. They will play music in both traditional and historical 18th-century Scottish styles, but will also include original music based on traditional and 18th-century models. 8pm at the home of Joe Dolson and Janna Kysilko. $20 suggested donation. »More information and registration via the Annual Ball page
