Seniors in Mind: Music of the Civil War
The Hillgrove Ensemble, featuring Diane and Erik Pearson, perform the songs of Civil War soldiers and the loved ones they left at home. The music and lyrics tell of bravery and homesickness, loss and love; themes that are as relevant and powerful today as they were in the 1860’s. A mix of song and storytelling brings alive the connections between popular songs and the people who sang them. The program is in conjunction with the History Center’s exhibit, “Minnesota and the Civil War”.
Programs include a 10-percent discount at the History Center's Museum Stores. Cafe Minnesota will be open for lunch following each program. Funded in memory of Marney Brooks. For more information visit http://www.mnhs.org/seniorsinmind.
