Annual pops concert planned at Smithfield Church May 27

AMENIA — The Smithfield Chamber Orchestra has grown to boast 12 members, who will perform at the Smithfield Church’s annual spring pops concert on Saturday, May 27, a performance sponsored by the Bang Family Concert Series. The hour-long concert will begin at 4 p.m. and be followed by a reception.

A characteristically lively and fun program is planned, including classical, pop and jazz, along with movie tunes and even some original contemporary jazz composed by pianist Larry Ham and Matt Finley, concert director, also adept in Brazilian jazz and flugelhorn.

The Smithfield Chamber Orchestra came into being in 2018 when eight professional instrumental soloists gathered to provide music for the annual Christmas Concert and Tea, a traditional holiday event at the Smithfield Church. Since then, the orchestra has grown in numbers and has offered a series of concerts of varied repertoire, attracting a following of area and regional fans.

The concert is open to the public. Reservations are not required. There is no charge, although a $20 donation is suggested in support of future concerts.

The Smithfield Church is located at 656 Smithfield Valley Road in Amenia. For more information about the concert and the Bang Family Concert Series, go to -thesmithfieldchurch.org/concerts
