Sunday – Music from the Gilded Age with Austin Burns

On Sunday, January 28th at 2:30pm, tenor Austin Burns and pianist Rip Jackson will present a concert of music from the “Gilded Age.” The Gilded Age was a term coined by Mark Twain and refers to a society which is “gilded” or thinly coated with a gold layer while under the surface lies the poor working conditions of the lower class. Sets from the program reflect the struggle of the 99% and the forgotten voices of women, African Americans, and refugees, and confronts the history of oppressed groups while acknowledging white privilege. A freewill offering will be taken.
