Please join us for our Season Finale concert and post-concert celebration! Ben Franklin attended concerts and operas, promoted emerging American musicians, and invented a musical instrument that became the rage of Europe.  “National Artistic Treasure” Julianne Baird brings his musical world to life in this program of music and readings.

This event is co-presented by The Fraunces Tavern® Museum.  The performance will take place in the Museum's Flag Gallery. …

Your (tax-deductible) ticket to dinner will support the concert series and cap off our third season in true historical ambiance.”
