LiveArts: Benefit Concert on October 21 - performance by The Buswell Ensemble

LiveArts: Benefit Concert on October 21
Join us for the first concert
of our current season!

Music of Mozart
Sunday, October 21, 2018
3:00 p.m.
LiveARTS begins its 16th season with a Benefit Concert. We are honored to have four amazing musicians participating in an all-Mozart program in the first concert of our new season. Internationally acclaimed musicians James Buswell, violin, and Victor Rosenbaum, piano, will lead an ensemble that includes violinist Amy Galluzzo and cellist Carol Ou. All four musicians have strong ties, past and current, to the New England Conservatory of Music and are known for their strong interests in teaching music to students everywhere. All four of these artists have donated their performances free of charge to LiveARTS and its audience, because they all believe in bringing great music directly to where interested people live. Experiencing live classical music does not need to involve a long trip and expensive parking in Boston. It's available right here!

The Benefit Concert will be held at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 21, at the Meetinghouse of the First Universalist Church in Franklin, 262 Chestnut Street. 

At 2:30, Ann Sears, Professor of Music at Wheaton College, will provide a pre-concert talk about the music to be performed in the concert. There will be a silent auction of a variety of items. Audience members can bid on gift certificates from several stores and shops in the area, a selection of fine wines, and piano tunings by our liveARTS piano technician. Doors open at 2:15. The building is completely accessible for all.

Recently, Donald Krishnaswami, Artistic Director of LiveARTS, was interviewed on Franklin's local cable television station. To hear more about this concert, and to learn about the upcoming season, use this link to see the interview:
