In 1917, Boston businessman William Lindsey donated 560 musical instruments to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, memorializing the tragic loss of his daughter Leslie Lindsey Mason in the sinking of the RMS Lusitania two years earlier. In 1924, Leslie’s death was further commemorated with the consecration of the beautiful English-inspired Lindsey Chapel at Back Bay’s Emmanuel Episcopal Church. In celebration of the MFA Instrument Collection’s centennial and the relationship between these two historic Boston institutions, Emmanuel Center is pleased to host an evening of live music and storytelling featuring the Museum’s Pappalardo Curator of Musical Instruments, Darcy Kuronen, who will be our emcee and guide. Local musicians will perform at Lindsey Chapel on 10 of the instruments from the MFA’s Leslie Lindsey Mason Collection, including flute, oboe, viol, cello, and guitar.
Admission is $25 – advanced ticketing is recommended as space is limited.
Purchase tickets by using the “donate” button on Central Reform Temple’s website centralreformtemple.org. In the “special instructions to the seller’ box, indicate Emmanuel Center/MFA.
