Sunday, March 30–Music on a Sunday Afternoon

Music on a Sunday Afternoon


Today, you have three marvelous choices to enjoy
some refreshing music on this on and off rainy afternoon.

At 2PM at Monmouth County Library Headquarters located at
125 Symmes Drive, Manalapan.

Join acclaimed soprano SHANNON HUNT and pianist DIANE GOLDSMITH as they present comic, soulful and playful music about love, loss and laughter.

This talented duo promises an intimate and delightful concert of song, blending light classics with selections from musical theater and film.

Shannon Hunt has given vocal recitals all over the United States and
in Italy and has performed operatic roles with Brooklyn Repertory Opera, Birmingham Opera Works, and Opera Oggi in Manhattan.

Diane Goldsmith has won praise for her piano recitals in Lincoln Center and chamber music in Carnegie Recital Hall. Recently, she also performed
with her vocal trio at Washington’s Smithsonian Museum.

Or at 3PM, you can head over to the Middletown Library at 55 New Monmouth Road, Middletown and listen to the Celtic music troupe,

Middletown residents Michael Hannigan and his son Aiden will be
performing on their bagpipes for your listening pleasure and in
honor of St. Patrick’s Day. Mr.Hannigan teaches beginner and intermediate classes on the chanter or the pipes and drums at the Bayshore Catholic Center, Route 36, Middletown. His son Aiden  began as his student and
now plays alongside his father as a member of the Torphy Pipes and Drums. Please Register for this library event.

There may be a chance you might be able to snag some tickets for
Monmouth Symphony Orchestra‘s 65th Anniversary Third Concert: Elgar, Schubert, Wagner.
Held at the Count Basie Theatre, 99 Monmouth Street, Red Bank from
3:00 PM – 4:30 PM

Possessing a depth of emotion and range of musical expression which belie her young age, 17 year old Sydney Lee, our 2013 Goldwasser Young Artist Concerto Competition Winner, will leave an indelible impression on listeners with her lyrical, soulful performance of Sir Edward Elgar’s elegiac Cello Concerto. MSO opens this concert with the overture to Richard Wagner’s light-hearted opera “Die Meistersinger”, an audience favorite. MSO will also include Franz Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony No. 8. Although Schubert’s reasons for leaving it unfinished are still a mystery, this is one of the most beloved symphonies of the 19th century.
Come early at 2:15 to see Tom Avakian, our bass trombonist and program annotator, interview our guest artist.
Please call  732-806-7680 for Tickets: $37/$32/$5.50
