Baroque Brunch

Where trumpet, organ, harpsichord and piano joined with good food and great ambiance, Deux Voix was with us again on November 19, 2016 for their second event at George Washington Inn.

In the fall of 2015, George Washington Inn hosted the Houston-based organ/trumpet duo called Deux Voix to perform for our guests at a dessert tea. It was such a great experience for our guests and the musicians that Deux Voix wanted to come back!

At George Washington Inn we love music! George Washington, in fact, was born in the Baroque era and was a contemporary of Johann Sebastian Bach. Music was an important part of life at Mount Vernon, the beloved home of George and Martha Washington. A beautiful harpsichord graced their home and often filled the mansion with its harmonious sound.

This year’s event was hosted by the George Washington Society, an educational non-profit. All proceeds from the event went towards producing the Northwest Colonial Festival. This was the debut for the recently acquired a double-manual harpsichord to provide more opportunities for our guests to enjoy beautiful music.
