A special treat for all is the Mother's Day concert presented by Eastman School of Music professor of piano, Russell Miller, in collaboration with SUNY Oswego vocal professor, Todd Graber. Graber, a tenor, presented a recital of American Art Music last year for Joyful Noise.
The concerts are free, accessible, informal and held Sunday evenings at 4 p.m. in the sanctuary of the Liverpool First United Methodist Church, 604 Oswego Street. Audience members say they enjoy hearing the artists in the comfortable, intimate setting of the sanctuary and getting to speak to the performers following the events. Many regular attendees have made the concerts part of their routine, planning outings with friends for lunch or dinner surrounding the concert times.
The series is supported in part by a grant from the Cultural Resources Center and the New York State Council on the Arts.
