  • Community Event: SPRING PIANO CONCERT by Ellen Schwindt
    5pm • Fryeburg New Church
    • From Ellen: “Now that there is a piano worth playing in Fryeburg (the village I visit to fulfill many of my other needs), it’s even easier to realize this vision.
    • The theme of Sunday’s concert is “To Spring.” The title is eponymous with a piece Grieg included in Opus 43 that I will perform in the concert. Its music is full of promise, but is not without reference to the dark days when the snow returns. Charlotte Gill will be sharing two movements from one of the Bach French Suites. She and I will play together on a set of pieces I wrote 7 years ago called Method Book Miniatures. These are little musical jokes inspired by famous teaching pieces.
    • The program’s musical selections will be seasoned with spring poems. Other players and readers are welcome to contribute. To join in the performance, please contact me at this e-mail address as soon as possible. Admission to the concert is free. Donations will be gratefully accepted to help take care of the piano, and to support my organizing work.
