The Proper Ladies - Weather Update

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Commemorate the 150th anniversary of the publication of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women with songs that were popular when the book was written and when the events took place. Meet Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy, as well as some of the characters created by Ms. Alcott in some of her lesser known works; the heroes and heroines she created in her own fantastic romances.

Enter the world of Louisa May Alcott’s “March Girls,” through the music they knew. "Absence" from the Alcott family collection, the romantic "Meet Me by Moonlight," introduced by a letter from one of the characters in one of the "Comic Tragedies" written by Jo, (Ms. Alcott) and other songs are framed by readings from Louisa’s letters, books and other writings. The Proper Ladies and Louisa May will take you on a visit to Civil War-era New England and the Alcott… er, March family in words and music.
