Music from the Hampton Mansion Collection: Eliza Eichelberger Ridgely (1803-1867) was a pioneering American heiress, musician and horticulturalist. A correspondent of the Marquis de Lafayette, friend of U.S. Presidents, and important businesswoman in her own right, she was also the owner of the first double-action harp in the United States, and both popularized and introduced many exotic plants to the country. Different authors have called her the ideal of American womanhood, a characterization reinforced by her iconic (and rather large) portrait The Lady with a Harp by Thomas Sully which hangs prominently in the National Gallery of Art and her family estate’s preservation as the Hampton National Historic Site in Towson, Maryland.

Welcoming reception at 6:30 p.m., Concert at 7 P.m.

Celebrate the sights and sounds of spring with this performance by Élan Ensemble, in the ballroom of the museum!
