2016-2017 Concert Schedule


Our 2016-2017 season features Bach, Handel, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and Bruch. Building on his highly successful arrangements of Beethoven’s Second, Fifth and Seventh Symphonies, Anthony Newman will present several new chamber arrangements of great music normally performed by large orchestra, including Mozart’s Symphony No. 40 and Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony. The December concert is devoted to audience favorites by Handel. The March concert will feature works for piano four hands performed by the renowned husband and wife duo pianists, Misha and Cipa Dichter. The May concert has been programmed to honor Terry Elsberry, who is retiring after 22 years as rector of St. Matthew’s Church. Reverend Elsberry’s strong support of Bedford Chamber Concerts, including financial assistance during the early years, have made this music series possible. 

All concerts begin at 8 PM.
