Songs and short piano pieces from the United States antebellum time, before the Civil War. Selections will be presented in two 15-minute segments, one devoted to Creole music from New Orleans, and the other to music of Stephen Foster. Each of the two segments are constructed as a flowing sequence of duo and solo songs, with brief period salon piano pieces mingling strategically among them.
