Art, music to be highlighted

The Susquehanna String Band will perform and Rick Bunting’s photographs will be highlighted at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 4 at Town Hall Theater on Main Street in Bainbridge.

Bunting, who also is a member of the band, is a professor emeritus at SUNY Potsdam and the Crane School of Music, where he served as chair of music education and conductor of Crane Chorus. The musician and artist mostly does nature photography.

A media release said he doesn’t think of himself as a photographer, “but as an observer and reporter. … Viewers find that his photos provide glimpses into nature that many of us would miss otherwise.”

The events, presented by the Jericho Arts Council, are free and open to the public.
