The new Conway Congregational Church’s airy setting and rich acoustics provide the perfect backdrop for sparkling harpsichord and soulful viola. The two voices will join to take us on an exploration of the heights of Telemann’s daring fantasias and the depths of Bach’s mysterious suites and sonatas.
We are so grateful to Pam for donating her services to help us put on our first fundraiser. The concert is free and open to the public, and donations are highly encouraged! All funds will go towards supporting Conway Fine Arts so that we can further our mission, bringing creative and high-quality professional programs to Conway and Western Mass.
There will be a reception with wine, tea, and light hors d’oeuvres after the concert. Please stay for a bit and say hello!
