On Thursday, Dec. 11 at 7 p.m., The Roslyn Landmark Society will be hosting their Annual Holiday Party at the Atria on Roslyn Harbor in the parlor. The Atria is located at 99 Landing Rd. Refreshments will be served and a cash bar will be available.
The evening will include a dramatic reading of a memoir from 1733, of a gentleman’s Christmas visit from Boston to Roslyn. The memoir will be read in period costumed attire and accompanied by music from Frank Hendricks and Linda Pratt.
Hendricks and Pratt began performing together at Cedarmere, the former home of the American poet and newspaper magnate William Cullen Bryant. Originally, Hendricks brought his theatrical talent to impersonating Bryant and interpreting his poetry, and Pratt shared her musical talent by performing period music on the historic piano as Bryant’s daughter, Julia, who lived with him and acted as hostess after his wife died. They eventually combined their talents, bringing their audiences a taste of life in the 1870s. On Dec. 11, they will offer an engaging glimpse of life in the 18th century.
