We offer at least 5 free concerts a season. All regular concerts are held at the Senior Center, 36 Bridge Street, Montgomery, on Sunday at 3:00 pm.
October 19 – Valentine Hirsu – Valentine is a retired NY Philharmonic cellist. He will play a program for serious music lovers – 3 Cello Suites by J.S. Bach. The ability to play this program is a monumental achievement. If you appreciate the greatest composer in history (not just my opinion), don’t miss this.
November 16 – Alacorde Trio – This superb trio consists of Jacqueline Schiller-Audi, piano, Jee Sun Lee, violin and Suji Kim, cello. They will play piano trios by Beethoven, Mendelssohn as well as music by Gershwin. If you miss this you might spend the rest of your life feeling sorry for yourself! Don’t let that happen.
January 4, 2015 – Gregg Michalak. Gregg is well-known as a fine pianist and fine piano restorer and tuner. He may be the worlds only one who excels in both arts. He will play Scarlatti, Beethoven, Chopin, Grieg and Schubert. Sounds like a winner!
March 15, 2015 – All Seasons Chamber Players. This fine quintet is well known in New Jersey, but is new to this area. Their program, called Spring Mix, will consist of Kuhlau, Tchaikovsky, Charlie Chaplin (not a typo), Faure, Piazzolla and Doppler. It should be an enjoyable concert that will leave you feeling happy.
May 17, 2015 – Maestro Khan and Ensemble. Maestro Ustad Shafaat Khan has performed all over the world. He and his colleagues play Indian classical and folk music on Sitar, Tabla and vocal. This concert should be fascinating and different. It should be a worthwhile and an interesting experience.
