Sunday Afternoons Live – 2018
February 25 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm$25
Andrew Armstrong, piano
First Church’s popular wintertime series continues at 4 p.m. Refreshments and light sweets are included in your $25 admission. As always, school-age children are free!
Taking advantage of the cozy and friendly atmosphere in the First Congregational Church’s music room, we will try to evoke the old salon concerts of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Each piece will tell a story or paint a picture for the listener, starting with the main course, Beethoven’s Sonata op. 81s, “The Farewell,” in which the composer vividly depicts the parting of a dear friend in three movements titled The Farewell, The Absence, and The Return. From there, we will enjoy many shorter pieces, like an spontaneous string of encores, with personal remarks about each piece along the way.
