Our upcoming public night on Saturday, February 1 will feature special performances by Early Music Access Project Artistic Director and baroque violinist David McCormick. From 7-9 pm, McCormick will present short, on-the-hour performances of music likely heard at Monticello, including pieces from Thomas Jefferson’s extensive music library and tunes played by fiddler Eston Hemings, one of three fiddle-playing sons of Sally Hemings and Thomas Jefferson. The Planetarium will be on display as usual, from 6-10 pm.

In addition to his work with the Early Music Access Project, David McCormick is a member of medieval ensemble Alkemie, Executive Director of Shenandoah Valley Bach Festival, and a 2020 Fellow of the International Center for Jefferson Studies.
