Community Harvest Festival
September 9 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm
FOOD | DRINK | LIVE MUSIC | SILENT AUCTION
This event is open to the public and will feature food and drink, a silent auction and live music from the Great American Songbook with husband and wife duo David Shenton and Erin Shields. Tickets are $75.
NYC husband and wife duo of Erin Shields and David Shenton, whose numerous concert credits include Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, will perform music from their show, “The Great American Songbook: Retold” from 5:00-6:00pm in the Church. These popular songs, that everyone knows and loves, will be presented in fresh and entertaining ways. Erin Shields is a lovely and versatile vocalist, and pianist David Shenton, who records on the Steinway label, is an ace in many styles. (Incidentally, he is the first and only performer to play piano and violin at the same time.)
A buffet of hearty appetizers catered by Harvest Smokehouse, plus appetizers and desserts by Wendy Langlois and her team, will be served from 6:00-7:30pm, with tables and chairs arranged under the big tent.
Guests will have an opportunity to bid on many silent auction items. Gift certificates to local restaurants and shops, vacations, artwork and food and wine baskets are just some of the items that are expected.
All proceeds from this fundraising event will help preserve the historic grounds, graveyard, rectory and church, which was built in 1852, designed by Richard Upjohn, founding President of the American Institute of Architects in 1857.
