Sunday Baroque host and flutist Suzanne Bona, along with pianist and internationally recognized music educator Brenda Moore Miller, will perform a varied program of music for flute and piano on Saturday, April 27 at 3pm. Sunday Baroque began in September of 1987 as a local, 90-minute radio show hosted by Fairfield, CT native Suzanne Bona. It has since grown into the enormously popular, 6-hour program that airs every Sunday on WSHU…and which is distributed to 170 stations across the country and heard by more than a quarter million listeners nationwide.
The concert is free admission, suggested donation $20. A reception follows in the church hall.
The program ranges from baroque sonatas by Johann Sebastian Bach and George Frideric Handel, as well as music for flute and piano by living composers including two American women – Dianne Gookasian Rahbee and Judith Lang Zaimont – as well as British musician Ian Venables, and American composer Peter Schickele.
