Chestnut Hill Concert Series kicks off 50th season Friday at The Kate
You can be forgiven for being a little peeved if you travel all the way to Chestnut Hill Friday to see the season's debut performance in the Chestnut Hill Concerts series — and discover that (A) there's either NOT a Chestnut Hill or (B) there is a Chestnut Hill but there aren't any classical musicians perched on the hill performing for you.
No, for this 50th season, all the Chestnut Hill Concerts will take place in Old Saybrook at the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center. Behind longtime cellist/artistic director Ronald Thomas, the opening program is an all-Bach affair. Paolo Bordignon, harpsichordist with the New York Philharmonic, will perform the concerto in D minor for harpsichord. Also slated are the Brandenburg Concertos No. 2 & 5 as well as the Concerto for Violin and Oboe in C minor.
A reception with the musicians follows the performance.
Chestnut Hill Concerts, 8 p.m. Friday, Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center, 300 Main St., Old Saybrook; $35-$40, children and teens free but must contact box office for a ticket; (860) 510-0453.
