Kent Historical Society Goes Authentic At A Tea and Musicale

Jamie Larson reports from Kent. The Kent Historical Society’s 19th Century Musicale and Spirited Tea Party on Sunday, April 17 gave today’s high society a taste of the best their cultural predecessors enjoyed in the 1800s. Replicating the time’s food, beverage and musical entertainment, the dandy affair featured a presentation on period customs by author and former BBC broadcaster Frank Delaney and a performance by Barbara Hopkins and Judy Handler of the Rosewood Chamber Ensemble, who played era-authentic tunes on antique flute and guitar, respectively. Also on display were historical ladies’ garments that were worn on such occasions. The event, held at the Kent Community House, raised funds for the historical society’s ongoing restoration projects.  [Above: Leslie Levy, Rudy Molho, Susan Forbes and Rick Levy.]
