Recorder Society will present seasonal music to benefit food pantries
The Oregon Coast Recorder Society will perform two concerts in Lincoln County in January: on Sunday, January 6 at 3:00 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church in Newport, and again on Sunday, January 13 at 3:00 p.m. at St. Peter the Fisherman Lutheran Church in Lincoln City. Both concerts will benefit the local food pantries.
The concerts will include medleys of holiday carols, Irish folk tunes, a medieval song in praise of the Virgin Mary, an eighteenth-century piece by Francesco Zappa, and a sing-along of old favorites to welcome the new year.
OCRS musicians play several sizes of recorder, plus viola da gamba, gemshorn, string bass, cello, violin, guitar, and percussion. The audience will have an opportunity afterwards to take a closer look at the instruments and talk with players.
Donations of nonperishable food items, checks, or cash are accepted as admission. All proceeds will go to local food pantries to support their work.
The First Presbyterian Church is located at 227 NE 12th St., Newport. St. Peter the Fisherman Lutheran Church is at 1226 SW 13th St., on Highway 101, Lincoln City.
