I apologize for getting this event up so late- I only just found out about it myself yesterday!
But if you aren't too busy and are looking for some historical and CHristmas tunes to brighten up a dark winter night, consider attending this holiday concert in the Pittsburgh suburb of Carnegie.
Event: Holiday Christmas Concert – Christmas in 1862
Location: Andrew Carnegie Music Hall, 300 Beechwood Ave, Carnegie, PA 15106
Date: Saturday, December 22, 2012
Cost: Free (donations accepted)
Description: The year is 1862. Both Union and Southern troops are becoming demoralized in this 2nd year of fighting.
To boost the spirits of those at home, and our own Company A, 9th Regiment, home on leave, the Pittsburgh Historical Music Society, orchestra in residence at the Depreciation Lands Museum, will be offering a Free Concert in the incredible Andrew Carnegie Music Hall in Carnegie, PA.
Both musicians and Company A will be dressed in period attire, and music includes the popular tunes of this 2nd year of war, as well as Christmas favorites new (new to 1862!) and old. This concert will appeal to all and is definitely family friendly.
Donations will be accepted to benefit the Pittsburgh Historical Music Society and the Andrew Carnegie Music Hall.
Thanks to Getty of the Steel City Steam Society for bringing this to my attention!
