Sit by the roaring fire, enjoy a glass of wine and tasty cheese, and talk about old times. Then get out there and create some new memories together. We’ll give you coupons for some of the shops at the nearby Prime outlet stores, just two miles away. We will also happily arrange a luxurious spa day for you all.
Are you up for a bit of spontaneity?
Edith Wharton’s Estate The Mount is presenting a special performance of Edith Wharton’s Parisian Salons, featuring the Cantilena Chamber Choir, on March 13, 2010, at 4pm. The Cantilena Chamber Choir is the leading a cappella choir in the Berkshires; they will sing French music that was performed in one of Wharton’s Parisian Salons, such as Sept Chansons by Francis Poulenc, the Trois Chansons by Maurice Ravel.
Many of Wharton’s Salons were fundraisers for the Belgium War Relief Effort in World War I. She worked tirelessly for the relief effort, and for this she was recognized by the French and Belgian governments. The concert in the drawing room of The Mount is a fitting event during Women’s History Month.
The concert begins at 4pm on March 13, and is followed by a reception. Space is limited, so advance tickets are strongly recommended. Call (413) 551-5111.
We hope to see you and your girlfriends this weekend at our bed and breakfast Lenox.
