All concerts will be held on the State University College at Oneonta Campus at Goodrich Auditorium in the Fine Arts Building. All concerts are free and open to the public.
On Sunday, the Chamber Orchestra will offer a performance of the complete Concerto in C Major, Op. 56, “Triple Concerto” for Violin, Cello, Piano and Orchestra. The Wind Ensemble and the Select Jazz will also perform.
Closing party set for ‘Record Breaker’
There will be a closing party for “Record Breaker” from 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday at the Orphic Gallery in Roxbury, with a performance by Zonder Kennedy.
“Record Breaker,” which will be on display through Sunday, features the work of Greg Frederick, an artist from Williamsburg, Brooklyn, who creates portraits of rock and pop icons from shards of vinyl record albums and covers. Frederick will be at the event.
Kennedy, a blues guitarist from Hamden and New York City will perform at the closing party with his band The Scoville Junkies. It was through the commissioning of a portrait of Kennedy by his wife Lata and her suggestion to gallery proprietor Phil Lenihan that the Orphic invited Greg Frederick to mount his show at the gallery, according to a media release.
The Orphic Gallery is at the Roxbury Corner Store at 53525 State Highway 30.
