The 26th Raritan River Music Festival continues with concerts in May. Guitar Mania is the name given to an incredible vogue of the guitar in European capitals during the late-18th and early-19th centuries, most popular among women.  Cultural movements like Romanticism and Beidermeier figured prominently in creating this fashion trend. With wars resolved and middle class prosperity growing, a tremendous new market flourished for music to be played on household instruments.  Enjoy an evening of music from the salons of Vienna and Paris, featuring the Newman & Oltman Guitar Duo’s faculty colleagues from Mannes College of Music (Marcy Rosen, cello), The College of New Jersey (John Laughton, clarinet), Lafayette College (Jorge Torres, guitar and Larry Stockton, percussion) and Princeton University (Jayn Rosenfeld, flute).
