WVPT Public Television and The Paramount Theater are partnering once again to host the season four premiere of Downton Abbey—free and open to the public—Sunday, Jan. 5 at 9 p.m.  Before the theater’s free, live simulcast of the award-winning drama’s premiere, guests can attend a private reception beginning at 6:30 p.m. and featuring British fare, wine and guest speaker Richard Will, Chair of the McIntire Department of Music at the University of Virginia. In the fourth season of Downton Abbey, jazz moves from America to Europe and the house welcomes a new character, a jazz musician. Will’s talk, “The Music of Downton Abbey” will share how music selections contribute to the series. He and UVa students will also perform music of the era.

Tickets for the 6:30 p.m. reception are $50 and can be purchased online or at The Paramount. All funds raised from ticket sales will benefit the missions of both WVPT and The Paramount.
