Thanks to a grant awarded by Middlesex County Cultural and Heritage Commission and to a sponsor of the recital series, this spring will be enlivened by four free recitals. We hope you’ll join us at 12:15 on the dates shown below. Think about who to bring with you or who to tell. The music will be a great treat, as will the conversation over lunch following each program. Here’s what is coming:
March 24 Chris Brown Trio, a saxophone, bass, and piano trio performing jazz pieces that Brown and pianist Alex Collins have composed or arranged. Alex Rodriguez is the bassist.
April 14 Cellist Elizabeth Thompson and pianist Phyllis Alpert Lehrer will perform works by Lucas Foss and Samuel Barber in this Barber centenary year.
April 28 Returning performers Li-Chan Chen Maxham and pianist David Iskowitz will be joined by baritone John Maxham in a program of songs by Schumann, Mendelssohn, Quilter, and Romberg.
May 12 Trio21 will perform a varied program of 21st century works ranging from children’s pieces to impressionist musical poems. The group includes flutist Kevin Willois, clarinetist Kenneth Ellison, and pianist Lynda Saponara.
