Our Shakespeare themed concert was cancelled in May 2020, but we can't neglect The Bard of Avon in 2021! For this year's concert, we're providing a little more stage excitement with actors performing key scenes followed by musical interpretations of the same plays. From classical and operatic versions of his plays, to adaptations in movies and Broadway, Shakespeare has been inspiring composers for centuries. We'll cover it all. "To attend, or not to attend, that is the question." No it isn't; you'll be there.
