Indulge in an evening of madrigals and folk songs with Eight is Eneuf at Hyde Hall. No tickets are required, but seating is limited. Don’t forget to visit the bar—drinks by donation.
In 2012, eight friends decided to add another evening of singing to their calendars and 8 Is Enough was born. However, they soon realized that 8 was not enough, and another voice was added. They went from 8 members to 9 (neuf), becoming 8 Is Eneuf. Now occasionally singing with eleven members, the group performs in theaters, churches, museums, bars, at weddings, private parties, and other special events.
The evening features Susan Snelson (soprano), Kerstin Green (soprano), Laura Harris (alto), Marcia Bowne (alto), Janine Sibella, (alto), Helen Benlisa (tenor), Chris Karmosky (tenor), John Willis (tenor), Casey Thomas (bass baritone), Chris Shields (bass).
Are you looking for something a little supernatural this summer? Hyde Hall will offer a new take on its fall classic. Though the evenings grow a little longer and warmer, the museum will provide a chilling experience.
Visitors will hear tales of the frightful and mysterious happenings on a guided tour through the shadowy passages and corridors of the historic mansion. Hyde Hall is no stranger to ghostly manifestations, spectral footsteps, and distant voices which started occurring more than 150 years ago. Hyde Hall’s skilled tour staff will take visitors to the places where the curious events took place. Learn about what terrorized James Fenimore Cooper Jr. in the middle of the night, and see if you can spot what stalks the notorious back hall—are you brave enough to enter the house after dark?
Tours run on Wednesday nights starting in July through mid-August and are available on July 10, 17, 24, 31, and August 7, 14. To purchase tickets, or for other details, you can visit Hydehall.org. Don’t wait too long—spots on these tours are fleeting.
