Early Beethoven and Georgiana Waltzes Concert
August 11, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
We’ve got a special concert at our North Church building in Eastport this Sunday, August 11 @ 2 pm. Joachim Woitun (cello) and Jane Lanctot (Fortepiano) will perform a concert of early Beethoven music on period instruments. Concert is free, but donations will be gratefully accepted to support the continued restoration of the North Church building with its acclaimed acoustics. The fortepiano to be played at the concert is a reproduction of a Viennese Andreas Stein from 1784. The concert will also include a locally commissioned piece (detail of cover posted here), The Georgiana Waltzes, dating to 1844 and composed and arranged for the fortepiano by William C. Glynn of Boston and dedicated to Miss Maria A. Hobbs of Eastport. An original copy of the piece is in our collections.
