In honor of Valentine’s Day, hear renowned poet Barbara Hamby and classical flutist Vivianne Asturizaga pay tribute to the Romantic Era which was characterized by spontaneity and intense emotions.
The Romantic Movement in the nineteenth century used emotions to express love, beauty, and nature through art, poetry, and music. A rebirth of the movement in the early twentieth century included the poets Dylan Thomas and our own Luella Knott.
Participants will discover the poets’ love letters as a “romantic” expression and literary tradition. Refreshments on patio include cupcakes by event co-sponsor Lucy and Leo’s. Space is limited so purchase tickets early.
This project is sponsored in part by the State of Florida through the Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.
Tickets are available Tuesday through Saturday at the Knott House for $10 per person or $8 for members.
