Beyond the Notes – A Unique, Interactive Concert

May 17 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

- $30

Step into a realm where music transcends the ordinary. Beyond the Notes​ is a concert that promises to ignite your curiosity and shatter expectations happening on May 17th at 7:30pm at First Parish Church in Concord. Renowned violinist and Concord native, Sarah Whitney​, joins multifaceted singer Joelle Lurie​ for an evening defying convention presenting a tapestry of solos and duos for violin and voice that push musical boundaries. Experience their groundbreaking programming, including works by Vaughan Williams, The Beatles, Bill Withers, Aaron Copland, Stevie Wonder, and more!

But Beyond the Notes is not just about the music—it’s about connection. Prepare to embark on a journey of discovery as the artists invite you to peek behind the curtain, sharing intimate stories and insights that go beyond what can be found in their bios. During the show, you’ll have the chance to engage directly with the artists, submitting your questions that will be answered live on-stage. Artistic Director and Founder Sarah Whitney​ says, “Too often there is a boundary between the performers and the audience. Beyond the Notes​ is an experience that breaks down that wall.” This interactive element is just one of the elements that makes Beyond the Notes​ like no other concert out there. 10% of proceeds will be donated to the Center for Disaster Philanthropy to support their climate change disaster relief. Prelude music will feature students from the Concord Conservatory of Music as well as showcasing artwork from Powers Gallery.

So, are you ready to go beyond the ordinary? Join us on May 17th at 7:30pm for an unforgettable evening of music, innovation, and connection at Beyond the Notes​. This is more than a concert—it’s an experience you won’t soon forget.
