The John Marshall House Salon Series: Hamilton: Music and the Mind

When: May 31, 2017 from 5:30pm to 8:00pm

Hamilton: Music and the Mind

“But when you’re gone, who remembers you name? Who keeps your flame?”-Hamilton: An American Musical

Hamilton is a smash Broadway success, but why? We invite you to explore this topic with special guest, TEDx speaker and music therapist, Daniel Goldschmidt, MT-BC. During this FREE event The John Marshall House will be open for visitors to explore the relationship between Marshall and Hamilton and the ways music influences how we learn and what we remember.

The event is FREE, but pre-registration is required. Wine by the glass available for purchase in the museum store.

What is a "Salon"? A salon is a gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse one another and partly to refine the taste and increase the knowledge of the participants through conversation. These gatherings often consciously followed Horace's definition of the aims of poetry, "either to please or to educate". Salons are commonly associated with French literary and philosophical movements of the 17th and 18th centuries.
