Under Milk Wood at the Norfolk Library
Sunday, May 21st, 4:00 pm
The Sandisfield Players under the direction of Ben Luxon will perform Under Milk Wood, a radio play by Dylan Thomas. One of the Welsh poet’s greatest achievements, Under Milk Wood was written for narration on BBC radio and encompasses a day in the life of the small fictitious Welsh fishing village of Llareggub full of eccentric characters. It is a work of dazzling poetry and sly and bawdy humor. Shining through it all is the love Dylan Thomas had for the provincial characters he created. Please call the Library at 860-542-5075 to reserve a seat for this free program.
Saturday, May 27th, 5:00 pm
James Kennerley will perform a program of J S Bach and his contemporaries on one of Carl Dudash’s beautiful harpsichords, built locally here in Norfolk. A recognized specialist in the realm of early music, James has given solo harpsichord and organ concerts throughout the United States and Europe to great acclaim. A graduate of the Historical Performance program at the Juilliard School, James is married to Norfolk resident, Emily Werne, and they live in New York City, where he is organist and music director at St. Ignatius of Antioch Episcopal Church.
