Music

NEWFANE "The Lightness of Dark" by Fiona Joy Hawkins and Rebecca Daniel: This is an ethereal and collaborative journey into the depths of loss, mourning, and recovery. Recorded in Australia for Piano, Violin, String Quartet and Voice, the album focuses on the way forward and the exploration of lightness within the dark. We all experience loss at some time in our lives, loss of health, friendship, a pet, lost youth or the loss of a loved one. When real life becomes art, experiences can be shared, learned from and resonate with others in similar situations. This album invites the listener to find the beauty in the sadness and move forward in a positive way. 7 p.m. $20 suggested donation (This is a fundraiser for the Church). Newfane Congregational Church, Newfane Commons. Information: 802-365-4079; Click to e-mail for more information.
