Event description

Description

Known as the Swedish Nightingale, opera star Jenny Lind was in her heyday in Sweden in the 1840's when she announced her retirement, only to be cajoled to perform 93 door-busting concerts in the U.S. and promoted by P.T. Barnum. These concerts earned Lind over $350,000, all of which she donated to charities.

Her talent lives on! Join us for a performance by Sabrina Laney Warren, soprano, who will appear as Jenny Lind herself! Selections by Stephen Foster and other 19th century composers will be performed in the Lord's Chapel at 3:00 pm.

If you've never experienced music in the Chapel, then you are in for a real treat! Hors d'oeuvres and beverages will be served at this event. Admission is $20 per person; all proceeds benefit the ongoing historic preservation of Elmwood Cemetery.
