1 p.m. Green-Wood Unveils “Angel of Music”

October 13, 2012, 1:00pm3:00pm


Join us as we restore grandeur to the grave of Louis Moreau Gottschalk, America’s first internationally recognized composer
and virtuoso pianist. Green-Wood has dedicated many years to the restoration of this preeminent 19th-century musician’s final resting place and to the creation of a new Angel of Music to replace the one that once graced his monument. The new sculpture will be unveiled at Gottschalk’s gravesite, with performances of his piano compositions and talks by Gottschalk scholars. A reception will follow in Green-Wood’s Historic Chapel.
