Music in the Nave presents “Melodies of Mark Twain” by The Rosewood Chamber Ensemble, who will explore Twain’s musical life from his early years in the South to his final days in Connecticut. They will perform the spirituals, Scottish and Irish songs, and popular and classical music Twain sang and loved, as well as relate entertaining anecdotes and quotes. The ensemble, consisting of flute and guitar, will perform on instruments similar to what Twain played or heard. Flutist Barbara Hopkins and guitarist Judy have taken their unique blend of musicality, humor and scholarship to venues such as the Adams National Historical Park, Yale Collection of Musical Instruments, and the Litchfield Historical Society. The University of Connecticut School of Fine Arts awarded them a grant to record the album, Songs & Dances of Early America.
