Join us for an unforgettable evening of stories and music from the Victorian era as we celebrate the bicentennial year of Queen Victoria’s birth. With the popularity of the PBS “Victoria” series and the strong support received for our “Downton Abbey” concerts in 2014, we have created a unique program of music which has been carefully researched and sourced from libraries throughout the U.S. and England.

Victoria – A Life in Music will include actors, soloists, chorus, orchestra and organ and will focus on milestones from the Queen’s incredible reign of almost 64 years. Songs, instrumental selections and works for chorus and orchestra will feature music by Martin Phipps (PBS “Victoria” theme), Handel, Strauss Sr., Mendelssohn, Wagner, Grieg, Gounod, Albert (Prince Consort), Stanford, Sullivan, Elgar and Parratt along with traditional Irish and Scottish tunes.

If you enjoyed “The Music of Downton Abbey” and “A Downton Abbey Christmas,” you won’t want to miss Victoria – A Life in Music.
