How special it is to have such a variety of talent and musical artists who make up the Community concert series at the Essex Community Church. This week, on Tuesday, August 2nd at 7 PM, “The Thugtets” will play. This is a group started by Professor Rick Davies of SUNY Plattsburgh, featuring local musicians who play Latin and Funk music, as well as jazz and other music. Sadly, their leader passed away earlier this year, but his music lives on through the reorganized group, featuring percussion, guitar, trumpet, etc. who proudly play many of his original compositions. The Thugtets have played at numerous places throughout the North country, and are an extremely popular group.
On Thursday, August 4 at 11:30 am we are proud to present the well known Meadowmount School of Music students, who will play as chamber groups. These young people come to this school from all over the world to study under well known music instructors…..we are so fortunate to have them in our concert series.
Admission is $10 for the evening concert, with refreshments following and time to meet the musicians. The mid-day concert suggested donation is $5.00. Your support of these concerts is much appreciated!
