GUILFORD- Friends of Music at Guilford, now in its 51st concert season, will present its annual Midwinter Musicale program on Saturday, February 25, at Guilford Community Church, just over a mile from Exit 1 off the I-91. The evening will begin with a pre-concert soup supper at 6 pm, continue at 7 pm with a concert featuring the HeartSoulVoice duo from Boston, and be capped by a dessert reception.

The HeartSoulVoice duo includes Janna Maria Frohlick, voice, harp, and piano, and Joy Grimes, violin.

The musical program will begin with original songs on themes of love, protest, and healing. Next will be a set of seasonal songs from the plays of William Shakespeare, including “Blow Blow, Thou Winter Wind” “As You Like It” and “When Icicles Hang by the Wall” “Love’s Labours Lost,” as well as “The Willow Song” from “Othello” and tunes popular in Elizabethan times.

An improvised song, based on “love lines” contributed by audience members attending the supper, will loosely illustrate one mode employed by the duo’s harpist in her work as an expressive arts therapist. The program will end with a set of traditional and original Celtic music, including “I’ll Make My Love a Breast of Glass,” a set of Burns songs, and a lively instrumental medley.

Guilford Community Church is at 38 Church Drive, off Route 5 via Bee Barn Road, just after the Guilford Country Store. The building is handicap accessible. In case Saturday’s weather is particularly inclement, a snow date of Sunday, February 26, at 3 pm, is planned, with a teatime soup and dessert reception to follow.

The pre-concert light supper, included in the $12 admission fee, will offer hearty homemade soups, Vermont bread and cheese, salad, and fruit. An array of desserts will be served at a post-concert reception. For more information call (802) 254-3600, email, or visit online at
