Join us for the Opening Night of "Celebrating 225 Years at the Southfield Church" as YeeJin Yuk, pianist, brings us a beautiful program featuring the works of Debussy, Ravel, Faure, Chopin and Dutilleux.
Admission is free; a retiring collection to benefit the artist will be collected at the door as you head out to the reception on the front lawn (weather permitting). Music at the Southfield Church is the perfect opportunity to introduce everyone to live music. Come, bring the family and friends and enjoy a magical evening at the Southfield Church!
The Southfield Church is located at 234 Norfolk Road in the Southfield Village of New Marlborough.
