Ring in 2023 with song
MANCHESTER - Taconic Music invites the community to ring in 2023 with a pair of concerts sure to bring smiles, a few nostalgic tears, and laughter as they look ahead to next year.
First up is a family concert on Friday, December 30, at 3 pm, held at the Manchester Community Library. This concert will feature the Taconic Chamber Players and students from Taconic Music’s Strings for Kids. They will play several popular favorites side-by-side. Suggested donation is $10 for adults; kids are free.
On Saturday, December 31, the festivities will continue at the Inn at Manchester’s Celebration Barn with music from around the world - the delightful “Suite Antique” by John Rutter, Argentinian tangos, Irish dances, ABBA, Viennese waltzes, and more. Led by Taconic co-director and violinist Joana Genova, the nine-piece string band will be joined by guests Vanessa Holroyd, flute; Jonathan Newell, keyboard; and Michael A. Rudiakov on drums and percussion.
The cash bar will open at 5 pm. The concert is from 5:30 to 6:45 pm without intermission. Tickets are $30 for general admission. Seating is limited. Tickets and more information are available at taconicmusic.org or by calling (802) 362-7162.
