Event

American Roots: An Evening Concert at Jefferson's Monticello
Commemorating July 4, La Follia re-creates a concert where Thomas Jefferson himself would have performed on violin, at his mansion in Monticello.

In addition to being a Revolutionary, a statesman, a scholar fluent in a half dozen languages, and a President, Thomas Jefferson was a skilled violinist.  At his famed mansion in Monticello (which he designed), he would host concerts featuring himself and his family and musical friends, with esteemed guests like his good friend Lafayette, and even "captured" British officers.

La Follia performs works from Jefferson's musical library, meticulously catalogued by Jefferson himself, with many pieces annotated in Jefferson's hand.

Jefferson's taste in these concerts ranged from French and Italian classical music, to English (!) works, to American art songs, folk songs, and folk dances.  We will perform all these and more in this fascinating insight to this remarkable man.
