This year’s theme, “Year of Music” will be celebrated, in part, with a musical performance from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. by "Generations Baroque Ensemble" whose performers span a half-century in ages and include a 13 year old recorder musician, violinist, lute/theorbo, harpsichordist and percussionist.
Morven’s Curator of Education and Public Programming Debra Lampert-Rudman, will help students to learn the “love language” of flowers, enjoy an illustrated powerpoint on this Victorian art form, and create artwork of your own special design suitable for framing.
