Our popular annual “In Remembrance” concert returns this season, with musicians Laura Veeze, Rafael Hoekman, Sarah Ho, and narrator D.T. Baker. The theme is “1914”: All the music on the program was composed in that year, and the poetry, read by D.T. Baker, will center around WWI.

We hope you will join us for a moving evening, as we listen, remember, and connect, through music and poetry.
