Late in 2016, a harpsichord was donated to St. Andrew’s. Our “in house” instrumental experts Ralph Valentine and choir member/organist Linda Mack and her husband have donated their time to replace some missing strings, repair and tune it, and it is now ready to be publically inaugurated!
So as the first of our 2017 St. Andrew’s Friends of Music events, “Baroque-ing in” the new harpsichord will be the focus of a recital in the church on Friday evening, July 7, 7:30pm, with guest artists Frank Nowell, Jim Fittz (cello), Linda Mack, Ralph Valentine, Tim and MB Krueger, Matt Bentley, and Ashley Hoffman. Works by Purcell, Couperin, Boyce, Vivaldi, and others will put the instrument through its paces.
Plan to come hear this new instrument in recital, and support the Friends of Music in its effort to fulfill its $20,000 commitment to the budget. Suggested donation of $20 per person; but donations of any size (+ or -) will be accepted. Recital followed by a wine and cheese reception in the undercroft.
