Final Reminder for Two Fabulous Concerts
Salisbury resident Audrey Silver's vibrant career as a critically acclaimed jazz singer keeps her tightly booked in New York City’s top clubs, but at 7 pm on July 9 you can see her perform at Noble Horizons, accompanied by her pianist and trombonist. Media reviews praise her "extraordinary artistry, velvet-laden timbre, and exquisite voice."
Two nights later you can thrill to a performance by local favorite, Michael Brown, who never fails to bring his grateful audiences to their feet! Picnic goers are welcome at 6:30 pm; you may bring your own blanket or chair or reserve a table for Audrey's concert or for Michael's concert here.
Should weather interfere, the bright and spacious Riga dining room, offering expansive views of the Berkshires, the fountain, and Noble ponds, will be the concert site. Per the Department of Health, guests in the dining room must be vaccinated and screened.
