They are repeating their St. Lawrence Hall concert which allows the audience to weigh in on the music of 1867 versus 1967. It takes place on Sunday, November 5 at 3:00 pm.
And just in time for Valentine’s Day we welcome, Patricia O’Callaghan and our good friend, pianist Robert Kortgaard along with Andrew Downing on bass for an afternoon of stunning cabaret on Sunday, February 11, 2018.
And on Monday March 26, 2018, we welcome back the Windermere Quartet to perform a rarely heard work of Haydn’s – The Seven Last Words of Christ.
Tickets for the first concert will be available soon – but we wanted you to be able to save the dates and welcome you back to our popular and eclectic concert season. We hope to see you soon.
