Riverside Cemetery will host woodwind quintet Harmonia V on June 26 at 6 p.m. on the lawn between our two ponds.
Harmonia V is an accomplished group of Connecticut musicians who each have over 20 years of experience and are dedicated to performing the best standard literature, seldom heard treasures, and the freshest contemporary music available today.
Each of the members performs as part of the Waterbury Symphony Orchestra. In addition, members have performed or currently perform with most of the musical ensembles in Connecticut including New Haven, Hartford and Bridgeport Symphonies, Orchestra New England, and the United States Coast Guard Band.
The cemetery is inviting all to join us for this mid-summer concert and is encouraging guests to bring lawn chairs, blankets and picnics. The event harkens back to a time before the creation of public parks when residents would picnic at Riverside’s idyllic setting.
A free will donation will support the Friends of Riverside’s efforts to maintain the beauty of this National Historic Site. A rain date is scheduled for June 27.
More details will be released as the event draws near. In the meantime, be sure to save the date.
