Live Christmas music from a hammered dulcimer and a display of dollhouse miniatures will top a December 15 “Music and Miniatures” open house at the Hill Country Memorial Health, Hope & Healing Cancer Resource Center (CRC).
The public is invited to have Christmas cookies and hear guest musician Carole Harrington who has mastered the technique of playing music on the hammered dulcimer, a trapezoidal-shaped instrument that has its origins documented in the 7th Century B.C.
Dollhouse miniatures to be exhibited at the open house are from the collections of JoAnne Spencer and CRC Coordinator Donna Lafferty. “Most of these tiny treasures were built in the one-inch-to-one-foot scale, but some of the Christmas scenes inside goose egg ornaments are even smaller,” Ms. Lafferty said.
Also on display during the December 15 open house will be a tabletop antique German nativity scene. The open house is from 11:00am to 2:00pm at the CRC which is located inside the Brune Professional Building at 808 Reuben Street in Fredericksburg. For more information, please call 830-990-6648.
