"Music on the Corner" at Avon Congregational Church presents Boston-based baroque violinist Emily Hale and Friends in a program entitled Birthdays, Bohemia and Bach. The year 2018 marks the 333rd anniversary of the birth of Johann Sebastian Bach, and selections from his Hercules cantata as well as sunny sonatas for violin, viola da gamba, and obbligato harpsichord will be featured. Music by Francois Couperin will continue the birthday festivities (in celebration of his 350th) followed by works by Buxtehude, Biber and other surprises. The concert will take place in historic Avon Congregational Church's acoustically wonderful sanctuary, and a meet-the-artists reception with birthday cake will follow! Free admission, donations accepted. For more information, www.avon-church.org or call 860.678.0488
