There will be an Evening of Entertainment at the Tamworth Congregational Church, Main Street, Tamworth, Sunday April 25, at 7:00 p.m. The concert of classical music - instruments and voices - will raise funds to benefit the church restoration fund. The current project is painting the interior and exterior of the church.
Performers giving their talents for the evening include Marion Posner with classical spoken voice; Allan DiBiase, teacher and accompanist from PSU with singers Jennifer Fijal, mezzo-soprano, and Heather Jacques, soprano; Ron Wold, French horn with Peggy Johnson, piano, and Chris Nourse, viola; and a special gathering of The Friends of the TCC Orchestra, Chris Nourse and Friends.
The steeple of the Congregational Church rises above the riverside village of Tamworth and is visible from many angles and distances, anchoring the village and standing out against mountain backdrops. This image graces countless place mats, calendars, postcards and canvases. The interior of the building is no less sublime: large, simple, and built to carry a speaker’s voice easily to every ear in the room, the acoustics are outstanding. The original pews have comfortable cushions, and for your further comfort, the congregation has recently installed plumbing!
The Congregational Church of Tamworth hosts a series of several benefit Evenings of Entertainment each year, some to benefit other organizations, some to benefit their own projects. Through these delightful fundraising events, the church has helped with projects as diverse as its own new roof and Kennett’s Project Graduation, and the community has enjoyed first rate, varied entertainment close to home.
Tickets for the Classical Concert on Sunday, April 25th are $10 at the door. Refreshments will be served. Call 323-8504 for more information.
