A centuries-old tradition of afternoon tea endures at the Porter-Phelps-Huntington Museum with “A Perfect Spot of Tea” summer series continues Saturday, August 27th with musical guests Pioneer Valley Symphony Chamber Choir.
The Museum is excited to welcome the Pioneer Valley Symphony Chamber Choir, a vocal ensemble auditioned from the Pioneer Valley Symphony Chorus. Under the direction of Jonathan Harvey, the PVS Chamber Choir performs a cappella music of all styles, periods, and genres separate from the Symphony and throughout the Connecticut River Valley. Their repertoire consists of spirituals, madrigals, partsongs, motets, and other unaccompanied vocal music all the way from the 15th to the 21st century. The group recently celebrated 75 years of performance.
“A Perfect Spot of Tea” also features delicious pastries donated by local businesses, attentive service, and, of course, plenty of Earl Grey tea. For an additional fee, guests may also tour the Porter-Phelps-Huntington House Museum.
