Music at the Mansion Presents The Beijing Guitar Duo @ The Liriodendron Mansion
Feb 18 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The Beijing Guitar Duo – the dynamic classical guitar group – will play a special indoor concert at the Liriodendron Mansion on Saturday, February 18, 2023.

Praised by the distinguished Classical Guitar Magazine as “having the star potential to serve as inspiration for new generations of guitarists to come,” the Beijing Guitar Duo made their New York debut in Carnegie Hall in 2010 and launched their international concert career.

Featuring award-winning guitarists Meng Su and Yameng Wang, the Beijing Guitar Duo has performed around the world in halls such as the Concertgebouw, Palau de Musica, Tchaikovsky Hall and the National Theatre in Beijing. The duo regularly collaborates with orchestras, in ensemble with flutist Marina Piccinini, guitarists Grigoryan Brothers and with their mentor Manuel Barrueco touring in Europe, Australia, Asia and the U.S.

Their performances and recordings have impressed the public with “an ability and artistry that exceeds their years” and their debut CD Maracaípe, received a Latin-GRAMMY nomination for the titled piece. In addition to performing, the duo shares a love for teaching which brings them to major conservatories around the world for master classes and to judge competitions. The duo served as Artists-in-residence from 2011-15 for the San Francisco Performances which brought them to the Bay Area two weeks a year for community outreach, performances, and masterclasses in public schools as well as for the SF Conservatory.

Music at the Mansion Presents Charm City Junction @ The Liriodendron Mansion
Jun 18 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

We are excited to welcome Charm City Junction to the Music at the Mansion stage at our first outdoor concert of the summer for a special Fathers’ Day show on Sunday, June 18 at the Liriodendron Mansion.

From dance-inducing Old Time rhythms and foot-stomping Irish melodies to hard-driving Bluegrass, Baltimore-based acoustic roots quartet Charm City Junction creates a fresh soundscape that keeps listeners on the edge of their seats wondering where they’ll go next. Featuring fiddle, clawhammer banjo, button accordion and upright bass, this quartet isn’t afraid to take roots music to new places — but always with an eye on tradition.

Formed in 2014, Charm City Junction has taken the acoustic music scene by storm performing around the country gaining high praise along the way for their high-energy, captivating and dynamic performances. The band is comprised of four of the most talented and promising young musicians in the country: Patrick McAvinue on fiddle, Brad Kolodner on clawhammer banjo, Sean McComiskey on button accordion and Alex Lacquement on upright bass.

Drawing from separate musical backgrounds, the four members have found a common ground on which to develop their unique approach. Since releasing their highly anticipated debut album Charm City Junction on Patuxent Music in the fall of 2015, they have performed prestigious festivals including Grey Fox, Old Songs, Bristol Rhythm & Roots, Delaware Valley Bluegrass Festival and an appearance at the Kennedy Center. They released their second full-length album, Duckpin, in the summer of 2018. The record debuted at #6 on the Billboard Bluegrass charts.

This is going to be a great show for the whole family!
