March brings Music in the Park Series and Family Concerts to St. Anthony Park

The Schubert Club has a number of musical events lined up for March in St. Anthony Park. The Music in the Park Family Concerts series will open its 27th season Friday, March 3, with two performances by Yolanda Kondonassis, harp, and Jason Vieaux, guitar.

The two soloists and recording artists will join forces in a program featuring “Spirit of Trees” by Alan Hovhaness and other works that bring music and nature together. Readings from Kondonassis’s book Our House Is Round: A Kid’s Book About Why Protecting Our Earth Matters, will carry a message about taking care of our natural resources.

All Family Concerts are held at St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church, 2136 Carter Ave., and have two performances, one at 6 p.m. and one at 7:15 p.m. Seating is limited and tickets for all of the 6 p.m. concerts are going quickly.

Later in the month, the Scandinavian Trio will perform Friday, March 24. The trio features Ross Sutter, guitar; Cheryl Paschke, nykelharpa and fiddle; and Marya Hart, piano.
