The Chevalier de Saint-Georges: 18th Century Black Violinist and Swordsman

20201112-parisaffaircover---susanne-dunlapThursday, November 12, 7:00 - 8:30 PM EST 

Join historical novelist and music historian Susanne Dunlap, Smith College class of 1976, for an audio-visual presentation about the life of one of the most fascinating historical figures in her novel, The Paris Affair: Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges. Saint-Georges was notable not only for being the finest violinist in Paris at that time, but also a composer, music director, and expert swordsman.

Joseph's eventful life spans pre-revolutionary Paris, an active role in the French Revolution through the Duc d'Orleans, and journeys to London and a period in prison. But those weren't the only qualities that distinguished the extraordinary man. Known as the Black Mozart, he was also of mixed race. His father was a landowner in Guadaloupe, and his mother, an enslaved servant - a beautiful Black creole who was a maid to the elder Bologne's wife.

PECAN SALES: A SMITH TRADITION pecans6a

For more than sixty years, Smith College clubs around the country have been selling Georgia pecans at holiday time to raise money for college scholarships. Dorothy Lobrano Guth '50 started this fundraising effort for the New York Smith Club about fifty years ago.

The NYC Club continues to offer the three most popular selections: Mammoth halves, milk-chocolate-covered, and dark-chocolate-covered. Additional varieties (such as cinnamon, glazed, or clusters) are available by special request.

These pecans make a wonderful holiday treat and as always, the net proceeds go to the Smith Scholarship Fund. 

Click here to order and enjoy a pecan recipe from Ruth Glass McKenzie '68 this holiday season!
