Last Minute Weekend Suggestions: Brooklyn Heights and Nearby

On Friday evening, November 21, starting at 6:30, the Brooklyn Historical Society will present “The Impressionist in the Boathouse: How Artist Mary Rogers Williams Vanished From Art History Until 2014,” a lecture and discussion by Eve Kahn, antiques columnist for The New York Times, who “will explain how she stumbled upon the painter’s work and archive in a Connecticut outbuilding.” The image is of Ms. Williams’ San Domenico and Duomo (1907), from the blog of the Smith College Museum of Art. There’s more information here. The event is free, but you must get a ticket here.

Also on Friday evening, starting at 8:00, Bargemusic will present solo piano works of Rachmaninoff, played by Adam Neiman. On Saturday evening at 8:00 cellist Ben Capps and pianist Vassily Primakov will play works of Chopin and Rachmaninoff. On Sunday afternoon at 4:00 Messrs Capps and Primakov will be joined by Mark Peskanov on viiolin, to perform works by Beethoven. There’s more information and buy tickets here. Saturday afternoon at 4:00 there will be a free, family oriented “Music in Motion” concert. Doors open at 3:45; first come, first seated.

Events in Brooklyn Bridge Park this weekend include Baylander tours at Pier 5 Saturday and Sunday, Smorgasburg (last chance this year!), which will be on the Pier 5 uplands Sunday, and Docent Tours on Pier 1 Sunday.

This weekend is your last chance to see the Heights Players production of Rodgers’ and Hart’s The Boys from Syracuse, which will be showing Friday and Saturday evenings, November 21 and 22, starting at 8:00, and Sunday, November 23 starting at 2:00.

Saturday is also your last chance this year to take Homer Fink’s Hidden Brooklyn Heights Walking Tour, which goes from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. After the tour, you’ll probably be ready for some hot dogs and glogg at the Danish Christmas Fair.
