4/13/2020 - The Musical World of John Quincy Adams Music Program

We embark on a musical journey through the life and times of our sixth President, noted diplomat, theater and opera devotee, and flute player John Quincy Adams. Come hear music from his travels in Paris, London, Berlin, and the United States, including dances and popular music from his personal favorite operas. A unique treat is a performance of Adams’ personal flute music from his student days at Harvard University

The Rosewood Chamber Ensemble is in its tenth season of entertaining audiences with their programs based on the music and people of the early United States. The Greater Boston Flute Association wrote about their Boston concert, "The pieces were played with great style and joy, resulting in a captivating performance." An appealing element of every concert is the background stories they tell about the periods, historical figures, music, and instruments they use. Barbara plays these concerts on historical flutes, including wooden Asa Hopkins flutes, made in Litchfield, CT circa 1830. Judy enjoys performing on her nineteenth century Martin parlor guitar as well as a reproduction of a Panormo guitar from the 1830s.
