Guinness Gallery Rededication and "Rach" Concert
By Jere Ryder

Guinness Gallery Rededication and "Rach" Concert
  Sunday, December 3rd, 2017, 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm

If you were not present for the debut of the Guinness Gallery in
2007, we invite you to join us as we celebrate the 10th anniversary
with a formal Rededication Ceremony.  Following this observance,
light refreshments will be served prior to a concert performed by
the Ampico reproducing piano in the Dodge Room, part of the museum's
Frelinghuysen Mansion.

Experience the enchanting and energetic music of Sergei Rachmaninoff,
one of the leading composers of the Romantic era.  Several selections
were recorded by and 'in the hand' of the composer, reproduced for your
enjoyment, in a wonderful setting!

Tickets are $15 per person.  Please call 973.971.3706 to reserve your
seat.  Special note: Proceeds from this final anniversary program will
be used toward conservation of Guinness Collection objects.

P.S.: An early heads-up for collectors and enthusiasts of anything
automata related: the 2nd-ever, AutomataCon will again be hosted by
the Morris Museum, this coming May 18, 19 & 20th, 2018.  It will be
another event not to miss!  See http://www.automatacon.org/  for more
details about what was involved in the 2016 convention and for details
about the upcoming convention.  We're expecting to enjoy well over
1000 attendees this time around, so make your plans well in advance.
Hoping to see you here, soon!  Jere
