To open the exhibit, beginning at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday the 23rd, singers will perform "Merry Madrigals in May" outdoors adjacent to the historical society museum. Soloists with guitar, recorder and harmonium accompaniment will provide occasional entertainment in the museum. On May 31, Ars Choralis artistic director Barbara Pickhardt will present “From the Podium – In Person” at 2:00 p.m., highlighting some wonderful memories from our first fifty years.
