Friends of Music's 26th Season -- 2012 Concert Schedule Announced

Robin Ward, saxophone and Dan Chien, piano play to a
packed house before the City of the Hills Chorus performed
at the Holiday Concert on Dec. 4.
What a tumultuous year it has been--internationally, nationally and locally--from political and economic upheaval to incredible natural disasters around the globe. In our area many folks suffered terrible losses from the flooding at the end of August. Sometimes it seemed our little concert series was the island of calm in our stormy sea and we were fortunate to hear some truly amazing performances.

We have more glorious music in store for the coming year, and we hope you will join with us once again to enjoy the performances and the company of your friends, neighbors and visitors. As usual the concerts are on Sundays at 3PM at the Frank W Cyr Center in Stamford, NY. From April through November these dates are the third Sunday of the month while the Holiday concert in December is on the first Sunday.

There may be changes to the following schedule in the event of illness or other disaster (let's hope we are spared in 2012!) so please check here or on our Web site at for possible updates. We wish you and all your loved ones a wonderful New Year's celebration and we'll see you in April!
