Point CounterPoint faculty ensemble to play in Salisbury

SALISBURY — The Salisbury Congregational Church will host the 41st season of the Salisbury Summer Performance Series this summer and welcomes back the Point Counterpoint faculty ensembles. Varying by camp session in terms of music directors and participants, these ensembles give local music appreciators an opportunity to experience chamber music performed by some of the brightest young professional musicians from leading institutions.

The Summer Performance Series will run from July 2 through Aug. 26 at the historic, but handicapped accessible, 1838 meetinghouse in Salisbury. The meetinghouse is at 753 Maple St., right in the heart of Salisbury village just east of Route 7.

In the first of five such appearances this season, on Friday, July 2, at 7:30 p.m., the Point Counterpoint ensemble will perform the Piano Quartet in A Minor, Op. 7, of Vincent D’Indy and Franz Schubert’s Cello Quintet in C major, D 956.

Because of the need to use the piano, that Friday’s concerts will occur indoors, whereas some of the other summer events will take place, weather permitting, under a tent on the meetinghouse lawn.

The rest of the season’s performances will take place:

•  Friday, July 16, 7:30 p.m.

•  Saturday, July 31, 7:30 p.m.

•  Friday, Aug. 13, 7:30 p.m.

•  Thursday, Aug. 26, 7:30 p.m.

Guests are requested to wear a mask for indoor events unless you have been fully vaccinated. There is no admission charge; a free-will donation in support of the series will be appreciated.
