WILMINGTON — The Red Door Concert Series at St. Mary's in the Mountains, 13 East Main Street, continues on Saturday, Sept. 24, with a unique concert of “Moon Tunes,” featuring musicians from throughout the Deerfield Valley. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
“Harvest Moon” is a concert of music about or inspired by the moon, featuring a range of musicians and musical styles, including classical music, jazz standards, bluegrass, and even a bit of Sixties music.
Among the performers will be Barbara Lipstadt, Holly & Joe Fortner (Blind Date), Eithne Eldred, Rich Mattern, Bekka Eöwind and Kurt Schellenberg, Mike Eldred, and the Woodland Musicians. Tunes will include such favorites as Blue Moon, Moonlight in Vermont, Lonesome Moonlight Waltz, Claire de Lune, and Moon River, as well as lesser-known moon songs. Attendees will be invited to sing along for several songs.
Admission to “Harvest Moon” is by free-will donation, with all proceeds directly benefiting Voices of Hope, which provides support in the Deerfield Valley community for those affected by addiction and substance use disorders, as well as to their families and others affected by these diseases.
Its team members help identify and access critical resources, offer educational services, and provide referrals to trained and caring specialists who can provide support and help on the road to recovery. You can learn more at the VOH website, voicesofhopevt.org.
St. Mary's is a historic church that offers exceptional acoustics within its wood sanctuary space, say organizers. Its distinctive red doors inspired the name for the concert series, now in its sixth year, which consists of quarterly concerts featuring local musicians performing in many musical styles, culminating each December in an annual Community Carol Sing.
