Newtown Friends of Music will take its final curtain call on a high note – with the world-renowned Daedalus and Brentano String Quartets performing Mendelssohn’s stunning String Octet in E-flat Major, Op. 20; among other works. Long a favorite piece of our Membership, we have chosen this spectacular composition from 1825 as an expression of gratitude to our loyal volunteers and subscribers for 40 years of exquisite music – superbly performed in Newtown. And of course, plenty of homemade gourmet cookies will follow, courtesy of our own Cookie Lady. ENJOY!
