Court End Christmas in downtown Richmond is coming soon! December 9th, from 12-5pm. It’s a wonderful opportunity to visit important historic sites…all free, and many featuring special events like choral performances (last year the St. Paul’s choir sang at Monumental, see above), children’s activities, carriage rides, special tours, and other festive events. For more information about this year’s event, visit this site: http://richmondhistorycenter.com/cec. For my blog post about last year’s event, visit this page.
I’ll be at Monumental, speaking at 1:45 and at 3:45 about Monumental and the Theater fire. You will NOT want to miss the others who will be there–Harry Kollatz, Jr. does a gripping solo performance about the Theater fire, and “Mrs. Poe” reenactor Debbie Phillips sings and retells the story of this famous actress of the Early Republic. A brochure of the day’s events is available here. Hope to see you there!
