Period music at Woodlawn

April 10, 1994

An evening of period music will be presented at Woodlawn Plantation in Alexandria, Va., Saturday. Woodlawn was the home of Nelly Lewis Custis, granddaughter of George and Martha Washington, and an accomplished harpist. The music will reflect Nelly's taste with a performance by a well-known harpist. In addition to the performance, with two seatings scheduled between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m., the evening includes a candlelight tour, dessert and coffee. Tickets cost $25, and reservations are required. The mansion is at the intersection of U.S. 1 and Virginia Route 235. Call (703) 780-4000.
