Wednesday concerts at Surroundings Gallery in Sandwich and August 11 Advice to the Players fundraiser

Posted for Don Sutton:

Surroundings Gallery is once again presenting Wednesday evening concerts at 7 PM; seating limited.

August 4th: Jazz Duo - Shepley Metcalf and Ron Roy

Shepley Metcalf (vocalist) and Ron Roy (pianist) are back again this year with their spin on all your jazz favorites. Not only have they been performing in Boston, but are on their way to Chicago in late August for a "gig" at Davenport's. They have also just released a CD titled "Something Irresistible: Songs of Fran Landesman + Simon Wallace". They are looking forward to sharing some of these marvelous songs at Surroundings.

The "recital" will start at 7PM. Bring your lawn chairs just in case we have an overflow of jazz enthusiasts.

August 11th: Open Recital - come and play a tune or two of your choice (6:30 PM)

In cooperation with ATTP, we are going to have an "Open Recital" night on Aug 11th at Surroundings Art Gallery during Old Home Week. No need to prepare a program, just come share your talent by playing a single (or more) song on the piano or other instument of your choice which may be heard better in the gallery. We already have several people who have said they would like to perform in this manner. Along with the ATTP Open Mic Night which will be held on the Sandwich Fairgrounds stage, we will be accepting donations for ATTP at the door. So there are a couple of opportunities for you to support ATTP, play the instrument of your choice, and listen to a little music at the same time. You don't need to be a pro (just ask anybody who listened to me play at last Wednesday's recital). The important thing is to enjoy playing music at whatever level you are.

August 18th: Chamber Group (Jerry Butters, Jim Henle, Fred Henle) August 25th: Chamber Group (New Hampshire Independent School of Music)
