Sunday Music Series to Raise Funds for Historical Society
The Pike County Historical Society had a rough winter which included pipes bursting and water damage. To help them get back on track, several musicians have rallied to help the cause. Won’t you come out and enjoy some music and support us?
Our “Sunday Soirees” begin at 5pm on Sunday March 11th 18th and 25th and feature the finest musicians around. The $30 admission cost includes wine and cheese and the cover charge. If you would like to attend all three shows, just ask for a “season pass” at a discounted price of $75, which covers all three.
Our music sponsor this year is Milford Presents and the good folks at Fretta’s, Hotel Fauchere and The Waterwheel are the “Big Cheese’s”, supplying the cheese all will snack on. The PCHS Board is happily donating the wine! SO, why not enjoy a night out of New York City caliber right in your own backyard and help a good cause? Here’s the lineup.
Sunday March 11, 2018 5pm Martha Lorin – accompanied by John Cook, on the piano
Martha Lorin is a true gem among modern jazz vocalists. Her styling, phrasing, intonation and sense of swing all show she’s truly among the crème-de-la-crème of jazz singers today. Her wonderfully warm contralto, which she wields effortlessly, is where her craft comes in. And her program is the very epitome of craft.
