It is with great excitement that First Music and Arts of The First Congregational Church of Greenwich presents another outstanding season of Sunday Afternoons Live held each Sunday in February at 4:00 pm in the intimate setting of our auditorium, complete with coffee, tea, and light snacks. Our season, this year, is gratefully underwritten by the late Stella Miazga, a non-church member who attended our concerts and generously bequeathed funds to support the series after her death. Tickets are $20/person (available at the door), and all school-aged youth are free.
The season begins on February 2 at 4:00 pm with Sax-O-Philm, Chad Smith, saxophone.
Sax-O-Philm is a unique theatrical concert experience which recreates the atmosphere of the 1920’s. It is a fully scripted and produced show, featuring the music of vaudeville saxophonist Rudy Wiedoeft, as performed by Broadway saxophonist Chad Smith, on both alto and c melody saxophones. Sax-O-Philm will transport audiences of all ages back to a time during which radio, ragtime, silent movies and flappers were all the rage. Projected silent films, photo montages, and interesting anecdotes of the period round out the show.
Piano and harp accompany Chad to capture the unforgettable sound of the Golden Age. The storyline embodies the character of Wiedoeft through his style, humor, charm and showmanship. Sax-O-Philm’s unique blend of live music, world-class talent and multimedia make this a concert event unlike any other. Please visit saxophilm.com for more information.
Chad Smith is a Broadway, film recording and concert performer. He has been a member of the Broadway orchestras of Wicked, Legally Blonde, Follies and A Christmas Story.
Our season then continues with:
- February 9: The Guitar In America with Peter Griggs, guitar
- February 16: The Many Faces of Love with Lindsay Kesselman, soprano and Christopher James Lees, pianist
- February 23: Music of Bach’s Time and Our Time with Masayuki Maki, harpsichord
