Shelter Island Friends of Music presents The Gossamer Trio
Please join us for a special commemorative concert honoring our nearly half-century on Shelter Island. Our very special guests will be the Gossamer Trio, featuring harpist Nancy Allen, her daughter, Claire Marie Solomon on cello and Carol Wincenc on flute.
Nancy Allen was SIFM’s first performer, back in 1976, when her father helped to create the Friends of Music. She was a promising young harpist then, and her career has skyrocketed. She is now principal harpist of the New York Philharmonic.
The concert will also celebrate the memory of Forrest Compton and Dorothy Seiberling, who devoted so much of their long lives and artistic energies to our beloved, homegrown organization. Special thanks to Seven, boutique b&b, and our generous supporter, Beth Swanstrom, for housing the Gossamer Trio on Labor Day weekend.
Free admission; donations appreciated. Wine and cookies reception to follow the concert.
