Join us this May for the Silver Tea series, featuring toe-tappin’ tunes including traditional Celtic, Yiddish and German music to the quintessential Great American Songbook and pop songs from the late 1800s to early 1960s and even new, original songs.
The Silver Teas series, now in its 12th year, presents programs especially for folks age 55 and older.
