NORWICH – On Saturday evening, April 24, The Monday Evening Musical Club presents a Scholarship Alumni Benefit Recital at 7:30 p.m. at the United Church of Christ, 11 West Main St., Norwich.
A milestone recital during the club’s 100th Anniversary year, the program features 11 alumni who received a scholarship between 1965 and 2006.
According to Publicity and Program Chairperson Susan Ticknor, “There is tremendous talent and generosity among our performers who will be returning from as far away as Albuquerque, New Mexico, Washington DC, Boston, NYC, western and central Pennsylvania, Rochester, and Albany in addition to a core of scholarship alumni professionals from the area,” she said. “Not one artist is receiving a professional fee, and we are humbled that so many alumni are selflessly donating this performance to the club and the greater Chenango County community.”
Performers on the program include Norwich natives Carol Bennett Redenbaugh, a former student of Margaret Hall who has dedicated her carrer to piano teaching; Jamie Carrier, Norwich Middle School Choral Director and flutist; Jessica Barkley, soprano and SU master of music candidate; and Emily Kirsch, flutist and award winning senior music student at Mansfield University. Matthew Nakoa Pryor formerly of Sherburne, and now resident of Boston and NYC, will perform his own piano compositions.
