Enjoy beautiful music in a spectacular setting as tenor Austin Burns presents an evening of songs from the Gilded Age.
Coined by Mark Twain in 1873, the term “Gilded Age” refers to a society that is thinly coated with a gold layer of unprecedented wealth, while under the surface lie the poor working conditions of the lower class. This program draws striking parallels to today’s economic and political climate, with music that reflects the struggle of the ninety-nine percent and the forgotten voices of women, African Americans, and refugees.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m., so that guests can enjoy wine and refreshments and enjoy exclusive after-hours access to the museum before the concert.
Austin Burns is a tenor, composer, and arranger who is a graduate of the New England Conservatory of Music. He has performed at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston Public Library, The Harvard Club, St. Botolph Club, Marble House, and many more.
