The Friends of Music Concert Series, an outreach program of The First Congregational Church of Camden, is all queued up for a full year of beautiful music, starting with the return of versatile guitarist, Aaron Larget Caplan, on Sunday, March 21, at 4:00 pm.
Because the First Congregational Church remains closed to the public during the COVID pandemic, the first three concerts of the year are being recorded by each of the artists especially for the Friends of Music Series. These presentations will be shared virtually on Youtube, accessible via timely links that will be posted to the church’s Facebook page and in the church newsletter. The last four concerts of the year will be in person if possible, and the church will confirm these plans as early as possible.
The complete 2021 Friends of Music Concert Series lineup of dates and performers includes:
Sunday, March 21 at 4 pm: Aaron Larget Caplan (guitar)
Sunday, April 18 at 4 pm: Gail Archer (organ)
Sunday, May 16 at 4 pm: Borzowski Family Trio (piano, violin, cello)
Sunday, September 12 at 4 pm: Edgewater Duo (piano and clarinet)
Sunday, September 26 at 4 pm: Duo YUMENO (cello and koto)
