55+ Exceeding The Limits - A Morning of Music

July 20, 2015

Heritage Farmstead Museum presents 55+ Exceeding the limits, an educational program designed specifically for seniors. Program presentations sponsored by the City of Plano and are conducted the third Monday of each month at 10:00am - 12:00pm.

This event features the lovely music of the hammered dulcimer, a historical instrument that predates the piano. The hammered dulcimer's strings are struck by mallets called "hammers", and the resulting sound is beautiful and harp-like. Guests will be treated to a short concert in the music room/formal parlor of the Farrell-Wilson house, where Susan McCarter will present heritage music on this unique instrument, and play an assortment of both tranquil melodies and toe-tapping tunes. The morning will also include a tour through the Victorian Farrell-Wilson house, as well as refreshments served on the porch.
