Pre-Concert Discussion

Saturday, July 22 | 7:00pm

Inherent to music is its power to sanctify the moment. Whether “sacred” or “secular” by definition, music affects us without distinction. Exploring the evening’s program through this lens are William Sharp, Donald Weilerstein, and other Yellow Barn musicians.

Pre-Concert Discussions

On Saturdays, audience members are invited to the Putney Public Library for an intimate introduction to the evening’s concert given by Yellow Barn musicians moderated by Artistic Director Seth Knopp.
