Music in the antebellum South contributed greatly to later forms of American music. Join us in the ballroom at Rose Hill mansion for “Gottschalk at the Gist’s: A Musical Performance” as we examine the musical creations of American composer Louis Moreau Gottschalk (1829-1869). Accomplished performer Dr. Brennan Szafron, organist and choirmaster of the Episcopal Church of the Advent in Spartanburg, will take us on a melodic odyssey through Gottschalk’s short but eclectic and prolific career. Gottschalk, a native of New Orleans, travelled the world, creating music with African-American, Spanish and West Indian influences. Limited seating. Reservations required.
