[USA] July 4th Piano Concert: Marches and Americana


THIS JULY 4 with Piano duo: Linda Papatopoli & Bert Yocom

This rousing 45-minute concert

features popular marches &

American composer John Townsend’s

“Variations on American Folk Songs”

Wednesday, July 4, 5:30 pm

St. John the Evangelist Church

35 Bowdoin Street, Boston

Reception to follow (light refreshments)

This is a free concert: Donations gratefully accepted

Regarding getting to the event,  the best way is to take the T to Park street, walk up Park (towards the State House), turn right on Beacon, then left on Bowdoin. St. John's is down the hill on the left. You'll pass a lovely park on your left and another church on your right. It's only about a 10-minute walk from the T station, and there will be extra trains on hand tomorrow. (That's the least they could do with the fare hike!)

We've added a nice addition to our program--a young tenor from New England Conservatory will join us in the Townsend piece and lead us in singing "Yankee Doodle Dandy". No vocal talent on your parts required!
I look forward to meeting all of you and sharing this special day.

After the reception, we can go to a restaurant nearby (e.g., in Chinatown) for dinner before the fireworks, if you wish. The church is located in central Boston near Chinatown and the firework locations.

    Beautiful music in a historical church next to the State House. Friendly receptions and Chinese dinner was wonderful with interesting folks/musicians.

    There's a small reception immediately after the program, then some of us might go to Chinatown.

    Greetings, Meetups/BCN!
    So pleased you will be coming to the concert! As you have probably surmised by now, I am one of the performers as well as the meetup organizer. I will be able to personally greet you at the church up until 5:25. If you come later, no problem--I will have a pew marked "Meetup/BCN" so you can all sit together and introduce yourselves. I look forward to meeting all of you and sharing this special day.
