BELL TOWER FUNDRAISER
On Saturday, August 12 an evening of Brazilian music performed by Montreux Jazz Festival prize winner and piano improviser Alex Pryrodny teamed with world-class Brazilian guitarist Cesar Garabini will feature a program of “choro” — a musical style that orginated in the 1920s and 1930s and has been described as a “fiery blend” of European classical and popular music with African rhythms. A $25 donation is requested for the 7 p.m. concert at St. Mary’s Parish Hall and a meet-the-artists reception. Proceeds support restoration of the church’s historic bell tower.
