    Songs and Serenades


    Graham Christian (piano) and Libby Maxey (soprano) have been performing "Songs and Serenades" concerts in the Amherst area since 2014. In the tradition of the salon, they bring art songs and the occasional aria to intimate spaces. Recent programs have included both well-loved and also little-known pieces: selections from Jane Austen's personal music books, a sampling from Jenny Lind's repertoire, and Cleopatra's arias from Handel's Giulio Cesare in Egitto. Their program for the Amherst Women's Club, a French tapestry with a few Spanish flourishes, will include works by Debussy, Hahn, Viardot, Poulenc, Rodrigo and others.

    All proceeds of the event will be used to grant scholarships to high school seniors and grants to local community service agencies such as the Boys and Girls Club, the Amherst Senior Center, Safe Passage and the Amherst Survival Center.

    EVENING BOOK GROUP STARTS

    Wednesday, October 26th at 6:00-7:30PM

    Geraldine Brooks’s Horse is a richly detailed examination of the violence of America’s past. She was propelled into the research for this masterly work by a chance conversation with a staff member from the Smithsonian Museum regarding the fastest, most celebrated American racehorse of the 19th century: 

    A horse so fast that the mass-produced stopwatch was manufactured so his fans could clock times in races that regularly drew more than twenty thousand spectators. A horse so handsome that the best equestrian artists vied to paint him...
