BETHLEHEM-WOODBURY — The Woodbury-Bethlehem Community Music Foundation Inc. has moved its newly purchased grand piano into the First Congregational Church. The Woodbury-Bethlehem Community Music Foundation is in the early stages of developing a Chamber Concert Series in the space at the First Congregational Church, 214 Main St. South. This project has been a long term goal of the foundation and has been aided by a recent grant from the Thomaston Savings Bank. The grant covered moving costs as well as items for care of the piano.
The WBCMF had hoped to raise money for this venture during the past six months, but instead will be using the piano to encourage funding assistance from the community at large, with concerts and impromptu performances.
Andrew Armstrong, a noted concert pianist, will be recording a debut performance of the piano in early December.
Music fans may visit the foundation’s website, www.wbcmusicfoundation.org, for details about the video release on YouTube.
Over the next few months the foundation plans to offer free virtual performances by area pianists.
The organization is compiling a list of performers who will come in and perform for a small video tech crew for distribution via YouTube.
