Sunday Afternoons Live at First Congregational Church

At First Congregational Church, Sundays aren’t just a day of worship. Their popular weekly music series, Sunday Afternoons Live, resumes in February, with a slew of exciting performances lined up.

This year’s season opens on Feb. 2 at 4 p.m. with Sax-O-Philm, a unique theatrical concert experience which recreates the atmosphere of the 1920’s. The show features the music of vaudeville saxophonist Rudy Wiedoeft, as performed by Broadway saxophonist Chad Smith.

Sax-O-Philm will transport audiences of all ages back to a time during which radio, ragtime, silent movies and flappers were all the rage. Projected silent films, photo montages, and interesting anecdotes of the period round out the show. Piano and harp accompany Chad to capture the unforgettable sound of the Golden Age.

Other scheduled peformances in February include The Guitar in America with Peter Griggs on Feb. 9, The Many Faces of Love with soprano Lindsey Kesselman and pianist Christopher James Lee on Feb. 16 and Music of Bach’s Time and Our Time with harpist Masayuki Maki Feb. 23.

According to the church, Sunday Afternoons Live is made possible by the generosity of the late Stella Miazga, a devoted enthusiast of the program who posthumously bequeathed funds to support the series.

Tickets are $20 per person and are available at the door. All school-aged youth attend for free.

Performances take place in the church auditorium, and light snacks and beverages will be provided. More details about each program can be found at Fccog.org/music/sunday-afternoons-live.

First Congregational Church of Greenwich is located at 108 Sound Beach Avenue.
