ROCKPORT, Maine — Bay Chamber Concerts and Music School is hosting an Open House and Faculty Recital on Sunday, May 4, in Rockport Village. The Music School will be open 1-2:30 p.m. for tours of the studios, to meet the faculty and to experience mini-lessons on a wide variety of instruments.
The community is invited to the first Faculty Recital at 3 p.m. in the beautifully restored Union Hall, just down the block from the Music School on Central Street in Rockport. The program features the Music School’s instructors, all of whom have important careers as professional performers. Strings, piano, voice and ukulele are some of the instruments the audience will hear in a versatile program of classical music and original compositions by the faculty of the school.
The recital is a fundraiser for the scholarship fund at the Bay Chamber Music School. Every year more than $50,000 is awarded in financial aid to aspiring students, with more than 40 percent of those enrolled receiving support. Free-will donations from the audience will be matched by a generous trustee of the music school.
