The RJD recently received a 1911 “O” Series Steinway grand piano from Jones family descendant Jane Young. It was given with the intention of reviving the long-standing tradition of music in the parlors at 396 County Street. The intimate parlor setting provides an opportunity to experience musical performances in a truly unique manner. The performances will have an interactive format with performer commentary followed by a reception with refreshments and an opportunity to socialize. Space is limited; be sure to purchase tickets at your earliest convenience.
