Benefit Concert Scheduled for Sept. 19

First Presbyterian hosts First You Dream

On Saturday, Sept. 19, at 7 p.m. John Cimino, Tom McCoy and a group of young musicians from Associated Artists will present a benefit concert for First Presbyterian Church of Philipstown at 10 Academy St., Cold Spring.

The theme of the program is “First You Dream, A Concert of Ideas,” with music, poetry, song and ideas from around the world as originally heard on the stages of Broadway, opera and Carnegie Hall.

Guest artists include pianists Francine Kay, a member of the performance faculty of Princeton University, and Jennifer Chu, a recent Julliard graduate. Three vocalists will also perform: Christine Clemmons-McCune (director of Julliard’s gospel choir), Sun Young Chang (a teaching assistant for the Metropolitan Opera Guild) and J.D. Webster (a Julliard graduate).

The suggested donation is $20 (seniors $12). Jazz Vespers will return to First Presbyterian in October.
