St. James Church to present free concert

ARLINGTON - St. James' Episcopal Church will present a free concert of chamber music on Saturday, June 7, at 7:30 p.m. This is the second in a series of concerts in celebration of the 250th Anniversary of St. James' as a community of faith and worship.

The concert features music for piano and strings by Mozart, Wolf and Schumann featuring Daniel Shulman, piano; Kaori Washiyama, violin; Melanie Dexter, violin; Catharine Hall Schor, viola; Jonah Thomas, cello. The music has been chosen with reference to the 250th anniversary celebration. Another special feature of the evening will be Daniel Shulman's conversational "Notes" on the music, offered during the concert.

The concert is free and open to the public. It is made possible by a generous gift in honor of the 250th anniversary by donors who wish to remain anonymous.

Established in 1764, St. James is celebrating its 250th year as a community of faith and worship. It is the cradle parish of the Episcopal Church in Vermont. The first Diocesan Convention was held here in 1790. The present church building was consecrated in 1833, built after an earlier one was destroyed by fire. The church is a community of open hearts and discerning minds. All are invited and everyone is welcome.
