Development in the Town of Bel Air exploded after the Baltimore and Delta Railway (later the Maryland and Pennsylvania Railroad or “Ma & Pa”) was completed through town in 1883. The railroad influenced Dr. Howard Kelly’s purchase of the Liriodendron Estate, and the Kelly family would later influence the growth of the Town of Bel Air with the Howard Park subdivision, the US 1 Bel Air Bypass/MD 24 intersection, and Heavenly Waters Park.

Join us at the Liriodendron on Wednesday, November 16 at 6:30 to learn about Dr. Kelly and the Kelly family’s connection to the growth of transportation and housing in Bel Air in this free talk by Laura Bianca-Pruett – Planner II for the Town of Bel Air.

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

Event is fully accessible.

This special presentation is part of Dr. Kelly’s Liriodendron: Life, Legacy & Community – a year-long series of programs, supported by The Dresher Foundation, which explores the interests and influences of Dr. Howard Atwood Kelly – world-renowned surgeon, naturalist, philanthropist, and author, and one of the founders of Johns Hopkins Medical School and Hospital.

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.
