Water Music on the Mississippi

Water Music on the Mississippi

Music: Selections from Water Music by Telemann & Handel

Water is the element that unites Handel’s Water Music, written for King George’s parties and concerts on the river Thames, and Telemann’s Wassermusik, composed to celebrate the centenary of the Admiralty in Hamburg and its location on the river Elbe. Join us for brunch, sips, and the beauty of these exquisite pieces, performed on our own magnificent river – the Mississippi!
