For those interested who will be in the New York/Long Island are this weekend, Old Bethpage Village Restoration will be holding their annual Candlelight Evenings this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, December 16th, 17th and 18th, from 5pm to 9:30pm. In the one room schoolhouse we will be utilizing and showcasing our four period violins, all from the mid 19th century and set up with accurate period pitch and gut strings, as well as other instruments performing holiday and traditional fiddle music. There will be other music in the village as well, including a brass quartet on antique instruments. Bring appropriate lighting to enjoy a walk around the village (i.e.,lanterns). Note: There will be no Candlelight Evenings after Christmas, as there has been in past years. Hope to see members of the 119th New York and 14th Brooklyn there. Merry Christmas to all!
