Our Members Holiday Party will feature a beautifully decorated Shirley Place, festive food and beverages, and violin music of the late 18th to mid- 19th centuries performed by Peng Yi. Other highlights will include a Birthday Toast to William Shirley and caroling!
This year’s party theme, “Holidays Glow at Shirley Place”, was inspired by The Season of Light and our magnificent c. 1780 crystal chandelier, which adorns the Great Hall. It is said to have once hung in St. John’s College, Oxford. As a treasured part of our collection the chandelier will be formally dedicated to Margaret Eustis Richardson and her late husband Dr. E.P. Richardson, who generously donated it to The Shirley-Eustis House Association in 1991. To mark the special occasion Boston Poet Laureate Danielle Legros Georges has graciously agreed to read a poem reflecting the theme.
Tickets $10/$15. RSVP Required by December 2nd.
