Free Coffee Break Concert Series

Dear fellow Hanoverians:

South Shore Conservatory (SSC) announces a new Coffee Break Concert Series
(CBCS) at its satellite location at Laura’s Center for the Arts (LCA), 97
Mill Street in Hanover. Performances will be the second Wednesday of the
month, October through April, starting October 9. The series is
underwritten by Diane and Gary Glick, and all performances are free.

“We are very excited to offer our Coffee Break Concert Series at
Laura’s Center for the Arts in Hanover, as part of a new partnership with
the South Shore YMCA. The Laura’s Center space is perfect for this
event’s combination of performance and socialization,” says Beth
MacLeod Largent, SSC Director of Performance. “Our Duxbury CBCS
performances are often standing room only.”

Starting with “Music from the Movies” on October 9, all CBCS performances
have an education component, as faculty members share the background behind
their selections to help the audience understand a piece more deeply.
Casual in nature with a “come as you are” intimate atmosphere, these free
11:00 a.m. performances include complimentary coffee, tea, water, light
snacks and fruit to enjoy during the concert.

Music from the Movies, which features SSC educator/performers Holly
Jennings, voice; Sarah Troxler, piano; and Jesse Stiglich, percussion,
showcases beloved favorites such as I Could Have Danced All Night, Ten
Minutes Ago, When I Marry Mr. Snow, and If I Were a Bell.

Most Coffee Break Concert Series performances, which, until now, had been
offered only at SSC’s Duxbury campus, have been standing room only.
Audience members are therefore encouraged to arrive at 10:30 a.m. for the
11:00 a.m. concert. Performances are one hour in length without
intermission. After the performance, audience members are invited to stay,
meet the performers and enjoy complimentary coffee, tea and breakfast
treats. If they prefer, concertgoers may bring their own bag lunch.

Other CBCS performances at Laura’s Center for the Arts include Jazz on
November 13, Holiday Favorites on December 11, Music of the Beatles on
February 12, Music of Franz Schubert on March 11, and Piano Four Hands on
April 8.

South Shore Conservatory is committed to being an organization that
welcomes the widest range of audience members possible – removing barriers
to participation and welcoming everyone in, regardless of ability.
Laura’s Center for the Arts is wheelchair accessible. For more detailed
