Curt DiCamillo, “The Adam Family: The Scottish Architects Who Changed the World”

Wednesday, March 15, 2017, 5:30 PM

The Adam brothers reigned supreme in Britain for most of the last half of the 18th century as the ultimate arbiters of taste and style. They designed everything from country houses and London townhouses to theaters, bridges and government buildings. The brothers transformed the direction of architecture and design across the western world. The sublime beauty of the Adam Style in all its permutations will come to life via a lavish PowerPoint presentation by Curt DiCamillo, whose heart beats with a Neoclassical rhythm.

Curt DiCamillo is an American architectural historian and a recognized authority on the British Country House. He has written and lectured extensively in the US and abroad and taught classes on British art and culture at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. Reception to follow.

Tempesta di Mare Concert

Thursday, May 18, 2017, 5:30 PM

Philly-based chamber ensemble Tempesta di Mare, lauded by Germany’s Göttinger Tageblatt for its “technical virtuosity, lucid music making, and joy of discovery,” brings music to the Athenaeum linking composer Felix Mendelssohn to the baroque music revival. The ensemble of two flutes, two violins, cello, harpsichord and lute will perform chamber music by J.S. Bach and some of his younger contemporaries from the collection of the eighteenth-century Berlin salonnière, Sara Levy, who was Mendelsohn’s great-aunt. Celebrating its 15th season, Tempesta has made a name for itself worldwide with its fresh orchestral and chamber performances of established repertoire and rediscoveries of lost masterpieces. Reception to follow.

This event has received generous support from The Alice Beardwood Lecture Fund.
