    House Music Series: Soaring Acoustics
    Highfield Hall and Gardens

    Saturday, February 1 from 3:00- 4:00 pm
    $35/$25 Members

    Join Highfield Hall for the first concert in our new winter House Music Series entitled, “Soaring Acoustics.” This chamber music ensemble will feature Jelle Atema, flutist; Robin Roberts, flutist and pianist; and Cathy Bonnett, pianist.

    Home is where chamber music began, and it is at our home where music and conversation will happen this winter.

    Chamber music is composed for a small group of instruments without a conductor. Because of its intimate nature, chamber music has been described as “the music of friends”. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe described chamber music as “four rational people conversing.”

    Program will include:
    “Andante and Scherzo” by Franz Doppler, (early 19th century, romantic and virtuoso)
    “Interlude” by Jaques Ibert, (mid 20th century, soaring passion)
    J.S. Bach sonata for flute and piano
    “The Hamburger Sonata” by Bach’s son Carl Philip Emanuel

    Learn more about the musicians

    The concert will be followed by a short discussion and light refreshments.

    Applauded by music critics as “…talented, sensitive…brilliant,” JIJI is an adventurous artist on both acoustic and electric guitar, playing an extensive range of music from traditional and contemporary classical music to free improvisation.
    Born in Seoul, South Korea, JIJI (Jiyeon Kim) began playing classical guitar at the age of nine. Her impeccable musicianship combined with compelling stage presence and fascinating repertoire earned the Korean guitarist First Prize at the 2016 Concert Artists Guild International Competition.
    A major highlight of JIJI’s 2018-19 season is her Carnegie Hall/Stern Auditorium debut as soloist with the award-winning New York Youth Symphony, performing the world premiere of a new concerto written for her by American composer Natalie Dietterich.
    She also performs her own compositions, incorporating electronic media and acoustic music, and she recently worked as a composer with the Yale Repertory Theater, Yale Cabaret, and Yale school of Art. Her music is influenced by her regular activities as a DJ, in which she highlights the electronic dance styles of happy hardcore and Berlin experimental electronica.
    RESERVE YOUR SEAT NOW and join us in welcoming her back to Highfield Hall!

  • Healthy Family Cooking: 5-Ingredient Meals for Busy Families
    10:30 AM-12:30 PM

    Wednesday, February 19 from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm
    Driving around town as the “parent taxi” leaves less time for families to spend together at home. The last thing a parent wants to do after all that driving around is to spend lots of time in the kitchen preparing dinner! We will explore how 5-ingredient meals can save you time.
    We are excited to have Peggy Eagan, a personal chef who owns Bistro on the Go, host this exclusive series featuring classes focused on healthy family cooking. Until about seven years ago, Peggy was a juvenile court attorney working with parents and families. Seven years ago, she became a personal chef and caterer. Through her work with food, she has been able to help vacationing and year-round families with meal preparation.

  • “POP UP” Kitchen Work Horse Series: Electric Pressure Cooker

    “POP UP” Kitchen Work Horse Series: Electric Pressure Cooker

    Wednesday, February 26 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
    $70/$60 Members
    Highfield Hall and Gardens

    Most home cooks have their favorite work horse appliances in their kitchens, but don’t always use them as often as perhaps they should. This series will address three classics: the electric pressure cooker (also known as the Instant Pot), the cast iron skillet, and that old chestnut– the food processor.

    Our Culinary Director, Gail Blakely, will share her favorite, tried and true recipes for each of these, and answer questions about them as well. We will also take a look at some of the cookbooks that are out there for your reference, so you can decide which, if any, you wish to add to your library.

    Class size is limited. Grab a seat at the table EARLY!

  • 4th Annual Robert Burns Supper
    5:30 PM-9:00 PM

    4th Annual Robert Burns Supper
    Highfield Hall and Gardens

    Saturday, February 29 from 5:30- 9:00 pm
    $125/$100 Members

    Join us for an evening of whisky, poetry, haggis, and mayhem as we celebrate our 4th Annual Burns Night at Highfield Hall! We will enjoy a fun and festive evening of “toasting” and “roasting” the Lads and Lassies while paying tribute to the National Bard of Scotland. Listen to traditional Scottish music and entertainment, drink whisky, and eat haggis (vegetarian options available)!

    What exactly is a Burns Night Supper…and do I have to eat haggis?

    Robert Burns was the National Bard of Scotland. The first Burns Supper took place on January 25, 1801, five years after his death, when a group of his friends held a dinner in his honor to mark his birthday. Today, you don’t have to be Scottish to take part in this beloved tradition. Fun, good friends, tasty food, and a wee bit (or more!) of whisky will make the evening memorable. Tartans from all clans and Sassenachs are welcome and no, you don’t have to eat haggis…but we think you’ll like it!
