The Seward House Museum in Auburn is set to host Parlor Music Concert: A Musical Journey through the 19th Century, on Sunday, November 18th, from 4 to 5:30 pm.
For the seventh annual Parlor Music Concert, the Seward House Museum will welcome soprano soloist Cecile Saine. From the Museum’s Drawing Room, and enhanced by its 1872 Steinway piano, Saine’s performance will give listeners a look back to the 19th century.
Saine is a faculty member at the Eastman School of Music, where students from her voice studio have launched careers on Broadway and performance halls across the world. Saine also performs with the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra. Saine’s accompanist on the piano is Howard Spindler. A long-time chairperson of the Piano Department at Eastman, Spindler is an accomplished chamber musician and pianist.
Admission is $20 for museum members, $25 for the general public. Space is limited. Reservations are required. A wine and dessert reception with the artists follows the performance.
