BCHS Docent & Interpretation Meeting: Come to the Party – Manners and Music in 18th Century Society

Wednesday, March 21, 2018 at 7:30 pm

Interested in volunteering at Historic New Bridge Landing events as a docent, greeter, operations personnel, or living-history interpreter in period dress? The Bergen County Historical Society sponsors the School of Interpretation to hone communication skills, familiarize volunteers with Bergen’s unique history, provide insight into the material culture of the past, and train volunteers in historical presentation.

In an age before LinkedIn or Facebook, professional and social connections happened at a dance, a soiree, or a society salon where the elite—and not so elite—gathered. This month, interpreters and accomplished period dancers Denise Piccino and Sue Braisted explore the decorum and rules of eighteenth century behavior and the part music played in the social rituals of the age.

Please meet at the Steuben House, 1209 Main St, River Edge, NJ.
