SOUTH BERKSHIRE CONCERT SERIESGreat Barrington, 3 p.m.
|SUNDAY - JANUARY 26, 2020|
Launched more than 45 years ago at Bard College at Simon’s Rock, South Berkshire Concerts has featured great performers and adventurous programming with a focus on exploration and innovation while leaving room for more familiar fare. The Winter/Spring season of 2020 features performers with personal connections to the musically rich Berkshires as well as concerts featuring music by women composers. Guitar virtuoso and composer Edward Flower will offer a solo recital with music by Bach, Villa-Lobos, and a selection of his own works, including a number of first performances. Flower formerly resided in the Berkshires and was a familiar presence as a teacher and sought-after performer through the mid-’90s when he suspended his performing career in favor of teaching and composing.
