Sunrise Music Series (2010-11)

The Sunrise Music Series is a series of early morning and occasional afternoon musical offerings hosted jointly by Studio Hollywood and the First Unitarian Society of Westchester with the intention of providing members and visitors from the community with an hour of quality weekly listening in a contemplative setting, surrounded by the natural beauty visible from the Studio and the Society’s sanctuary room.  The programs - which are open to the public and admission-free - are intended to be informal but well-prepared offerings, as an interim step toward final concert preparation.  Weekly printed Programs and accompanying Notes are be provided (links to the .pdf files appear on this site in the Programs & Notes tab), along with brief introductory comments by the performer.
