David and Ginger Hildebrand, nationally renowned specialists in early American music, have selected music chiefly from 18th-century sources. You’ll experience works performed in fine area Georgian town homes, songs heard at taverns and county fairs, military ballads, theatre songs and tunes to which locals danced. The music will be largely drawn from their CDs “Over the Hills and Far Away, a Collection of Music from 18th-Century Annapolis” and”Music of the Charles Carroll Family, 1785-1832″. The Hildebrands’ music is arranged for voices, harpsichord, violin, English guitar, Spanish guitar and hammered dulcimer. Ginger holds a Master of Music from the Peabody Conservatory, and David earned the Ph.D. in Musicology from Catholic University.
The Hildebrands specialize in researching, recording, and performing early American music. Since 1980 they have presented concerts and educational programs throughout the country for museums, historical societies, public schools, and universities. Mount Vernon, the Smithsonian Institution, the National Gallery of Art, and Colonial Williamsburg are among their many past sponsors. David and Ginger Hildebrand provided soundtrack materials and served as period music consultants for several PBS broadcasts, including the series Liberty!–the American Revolution and the one-hour specials Jefferson: A View from the Mountain and Rediscovering George Washington. In addition to family and adult programs David and Ginger frequently appear at primary schools and offer workshops for teachers to aid in the teaching of American history through music.
This program is part of a ticketed concert series offered monthly on the 4th Friday at 8 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Annapolis (UUCA). A Friday Five Pack ticket ($12 per concert) can be obtained at the door for $60. The fall season continues on October 23 with the Lenny Marcus Jazz Trio.
