Pour a cup of tea, settle into the horsehair sofa and enjoy an hour of music from times gone by.
Dwight Davis presents “From the Parlor” live in Portsmouth as a part of the Zelma G. Rivin Wonderful Wednesdays Summer Music Series at the Jewish Museum and Cultural Center in Portsmouth.
Dwight Davis, host of “Morning Classics, “Arts Conversations,” “Bird Notes” and “From the Parlor” has been working in classical music since 1973 and hosting programs for WHRO 90.3 since 1983.
The 2018 summer series has featured Dramtreeo, a five-member acoustic folk group, and future performances include, the music of the Wren Masters and Cantor Jennifer Rueben. Advance tickets for the series are available via the Jewish Museum and Cultural Center for $20 and $25 at the door.
WHRO 90.3’s “From the Parlor” takes you back to a more genteel time, when music was made in the home. Enjoy songs that were sung around the piano after dinner, works played on the old upright in the parlor, great singers from the past, like John McCormack, whose cylinder recordings brought romantic songs into the home.
“From the Parlor” airs every Sunday from 3 - 4 p.m. on WHRO 90.3. For more, listen to the latest episode of “From the Parlor” or browse through the archives.
