Strings for Food Restringing Event at the North Conway Music Center, 10 am – 3 pm
The North Conway Music Center writes, “The fall season is known for being abundant with eating, baking, and laughing. But, for some these activities are hard to fully enjoy. This fall the North Conway Music Center is pairing up with the Conway Village Food Pantry, and most importantly, YOU, to help stock the shelves this holiday season during our annual Food for Strings event. On November 10th, if you bring in two or more non-perishable food items to the North Conway Music Center, we will clean and restring your electric, acoustic, and classical guitars, as well as ukuleles!

“A restring is a standard maintenance routine for string instruments, and we know that sometimes life gets in the way of being able to drop your instrument off for service. When you bring non-perishable goods to our Food for Strings event you are not only getting a regular maintenance service for your instrument for free, but you are helping someone in the community. All donations go directly to the Conway Village Food Pantry. Stop by the store between the hours of 10 am and 3 pm on November 10th for your restringing, and consultation from our luthier, Ian Bird.  Open your instrument case, pantry, and heart and join us at the North Conway Music Center in showing those in our community what it means to be part of the valley.  Sponsored By: DR Strings, D’Addario, and Ernie Ball

Velvet Determination: A Young Pianist’s Journey to New York at The Arts Center at 12 Main, Center Sandwich, 7:30 pm
Cynthia Shaw enjoyed her childhood of piano lessons and music-making. But as time went on she developed bigger dreams: moving to New York to attend the esteemed Manhattan School of Music. However, this goal was a bit more difficult than she expected.  As she struggles with her self-sabotaging demons, shaky memorization and insufficient technique, she masters a falling piano, a sweltering practice room, a music-hating neighbor, a condescending teacher and other obstacles that confront a young Colorado classical pianist who has decided to tackle the
Big Apple!

In this charming, music-filled 60-minute solo show, Cynthia creates over ten characters including her piano teachers:  her kindly childhood teacher, her University of Denver teacher who opens up her eyes to the world of New York and her formidable first NY piano teacher.  Throughout the show, she’ll play the piano music of Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Chopin, Debussy, and Schubert. The show is touching, funny, honest and very musical. Admission is Choose-Your-Own-Ticket price, and light refreshments will be available by donation.
