Historically minded groups commemorate tragedy at high tea
Attendees dressed as elegantly as first-class passengers on the Titanic, celebrating the style of the Edwardian Era while respectfully honoring the memory of the more than 1,500 people lost aboard the ship 100 years ago.
World-renowned musician Cecilia Brauer played the “Titanic” movie theme on the glass armonica, which produces a ghostly sound. Ambre Andruszkiewicz of Ozone Park, 11, said she loves the Oscar-winning film and has seen it more times than she can count.
Richmond Hill Historical Society Vice President Helen Day planned the commemorative tea. Ivan Mrakovcic is the group’s founding president, and historian Carl Ballenas, right, provided the Titanic memorabilia.
The elegance of the event was reflected in both the high-class place settings and the attire of waiter Kevin McAuley.
