The Healing Power of Nature – Outdoor Exploration with Nature Worx

The Healing Power of Nature – Outdoor Exploration with Nature Worx

Intentional time spent in nature benefits our mental and emotional health by reducing stress and anxiety and improving mood. Led in partnership with Nature Worx, we will take a saunter around the Liriodendron grounds and discover ways to connect with nature using all of our senses.  We will explore several natural elements that are available to us as resources and allies to help us manage the challenges that we face in our daily lives. Participants will learn simple ways to mindfully access the healing properties of the natural world anytime and anywhere outdoors.

We will have two sessions – one for all ages, and one just for adults.

Event is free, but reservations are required. Appropriate for all ages. Some light hiking is required. Please wear appropriate footwear and clothing. Event will happen rain or shine.

The Street Preacher Surgeon: Dr. Kelly and His Anti-Vice Activism

The Street Preacher Surgeon: Dr. Kelly and His Anti-Vice Activism

Baltimore, like many American cities in the 1910s, had a thriving prostitution trade. Dr. Howard A. Kelly, renowned Johns Hopkins surgeon and original owner of the Liriodendron Mansion, was a prominent figure in the statewide movement to end that trade and shutter Baltimore’s red-light districts.

Come to the Liriodendron on Tuesday, June 21 at 6:30 to learn about Dr. Kelly’s anti-vice activism and Baltimore’s bawdy past in this free talk by Dr. Katie M. Hemphill – Associate Professor of History at the University of Arizona and the author of Bawdy City: Commercial Sex and Regulation in Baltimore, 1790-1915

The event is free and open to the public, but reservations are required as seating is limited. Visit https://bit.ly/DrKellyTix for reservations. 

Event is fully accessible.

Music at the Mansion Presents DuPont Brass

e’re excited to welcome DuPont Brass to the Music at the Mansion stage on Sunday, August 14 from 5 to 7 pm. 

DuPont Brass is a unique, soulful, brass ensemble hailing from the D.C. Metropolitan Area. Originally composed of five music majors from Howard University trying to raise money for tuition during the Christmas season, they have now grown to an 9-piece ensemble consisting of brass, a rhythm section, and vocalists.

Gaining popularity from playing at local Metro stations, DuPont Brass started out professionally playing for weddings, banquets, and other private events in the surrounding area. Thanks to the foundation laid in their earlier years, DuPont Brass has had the opportunity to perform in conjunction with the D.C. Jazz Festival, The Washington Performing Arts Society, and on the prestigious Kennedy Center Millennium Stage.

Through their training in both classical and contemporary styles, the rising supergroup has developed a sound that mixes varied genres of music, including jazz, hip-hop, and R&B. In their latest effort, Music Education, DuPont Brass shows us why they are qualified to excel in both the education and performance arenas of the music industry. Filled with a diverse arsenal of musical styles, they present a body of work made with every kind of listener in mind.
