BBC&S host site for Philharmonic fundraiser
A special live performance created as part of the Northeastern Pennsylvania Philharmonic's Masterworks Series is set for BBC&S' Murphy Memorial Library on Thursday, September 19.
The evening event features pianists Christina and Michelle Naughton and serves as a fundraiser for the nonprofit organization.
"We've always been impressed with the enthusiasm and manners Baptist Bible students have when they attend Northeastern Pennsylvania Philharmonic concerts," said Lizzy Kuna, the group's manager of donor and corporate relations. "Having witnessed how they have conducted themselves at past concerts, a partnership such as this event seemed like an ideal fit."
The program begins at 6 p.m. with hors d'oeuvres on the Jackson Hall patio. BBC music students will be assisting as waiters and waitresses for the event.
The Naughton sisters will perform on two pianos in the second floor library beginning at 7 p.m. The pair open the Northeastern Pennsylvania Philharmonic season Saturday, September 21 at the F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre.
Natives of Princeton, NJ, Christina and Michelle are graduates of Juilliard School and the Curtis Institute of Music, where they were each awarded the Festorazzi Prize. They are Steinway Artists and now live in New York City.
Tickets are required to attend the event. For details, go to www.nepaphil.org.
