Join us in Clermont Cottage for our Harmonies on the Hudson Season Preview Party (complete with wine and cheese!) We are thrilled to welcome Kayla Rae back to the series again this season.

Kayla Rae is a 19 year old singer/songwriter from Lagrangeville, NY. As a soulful, jazzy-pop vocalist, with influences from Amy Winehouse, Lana Del Rey, and Lady Gaga, Kayla Rae likes to stick to her dark and mysterious side, despite the upbeat vibe of the music. She is always writing new material, recording, performing, competing, collaborating with other artists, and posting videos via social media, continuing to grow her presence.

Kayla Rae has been blessed with a variety of amazing opportunities already throughout her career. However in 2016, things began to build upon themselves. Her single, "Lullaby" is capturing the hearts of fans everywhere, and is loved by many industry elite. Also, with more than 50 performances all across the Tri-State area and beyond in just the past year, she has electrified crowds, entertaining for tens of thousands at some of the biggest festivals in NY and NJ. Her dedication earned her voice/music to be featured in several films and television shows over the past few years.

UnderWhere? Dress Reform Lecture
Sunday, June 10, 2018 01:00 PM
Clermont State Historic Site
(518) 537-4240

The Dress Reform movement of the mid-19th century hoped to liberate women from the most limiting aspects of their clothing. It was symbolized by the adoption of a shorter skirt over loose pants or "bloomers," but it also encompassed other changes more intimately inside a woman's layers of clothes. Other reform movements, including the women's suffrage movement, adopted the Bloomer costume as a representation of their ideals. The reform dress inspired intense controversy, and lead Americans to question gender roles and expression. Join historians Ashley Hopkins-Benton and Kjirsten Gustavson as they uncover these layers of controversy, comparing the differences between fashionable dress and reform dress of the 1850s and linking them to the social movements that changed women's lives for generations to come. The talk will be heavily illustrated and include reproduction costumes. Tickets are $10 for Friends of Clermont members; $12 for non-members.
