  • Overview

    Join us in Historic Cherry Hill's Formal Parlor for a rare treat, as Dr. Christopher Brellochs discusses the music in HBO's "The Gilded Age" and performs a holiday-inspired musical demo on the saxophone.

    Dr. Christopher Brellochs is an internationally recognized lecturer, performer, music historian, and educator, who currently serves as the Dean of the School of Music at the State University of New York at Schenectady and Adjunct Artist in Music at Vassar College. His scholarship is dedicated to unearthing forgotten gems of the late 19th and early 20th-century American repertoire, and, whenever possible, recreating them in the salons and concert halls for which they were originally conceived. In Season 1 of HBO’s “The Gilded Age” he helped ensure the historic accuracy of the Academy of Music orchestra scene in which he also appeared as composer/conductor John Knowles Paine. Dr. Brellochs will discuss the music and characters in the series, share behind the scenes stories, and treat guests to a holiday inspired musical demo on the saxophone, a musical instrument that had only just been invented in the Gilded Age!

    Admission is charged and reservations are required for in-person attendance via Eventbrite. Live streamed free to YouTube.
