The Bruce Porter Memorial Music Series for 2017-2018
Founded in 2011 by members of South Congregational Church, Granby’s new classical music series is devoted to honoring the life and work of Bruce Porter, and his contributions as an organist and director. We will present four events in the upcoming season, thanks to the support of an Artscape grant from the Greater Hartford Arts Council and the generous donations received from those in the Farmington Valley community who have attended concerts at South Church for the past several years.


Sunday, October 22, 2017, 4pm-- Jazz Alive! The Nat Reeves jazz trio will collaborate with poet Kate Rushin on a program combining music and poetry.
Sunday, December 3, 2017, 4pm-- The New England Ringers, known for their exciting repertoire for six full octaves of large and small handbells.
Friday, January 19, 2018, 7pm-- Jason Roberts, organist extraordinaire, accompanies another black and white silent film comedy with his improvisational wizardry.
Sunday, April 22, 2018, 4pm--The Hartt Collegium Musicum, a student Baroque Orchestra, under the direction of harpsichordist Kenneth Nott and violin virtuoso Emlyn Ngai, returns to the series for the fourth time.

The Bruce Porter Memorial Music Series is held in the sanctuary of South Congregational Church, 242 Salmon Brook Street, Granby CT. The church is wheelchair accessible. Admission to the concerts is free, with a suggested donation of $10 at the door to support the continuance of the series. For more information please contact the South Church office at 860-653-7289
