Two free Marblehead concerts: Sergey Schepkin and Brahms Requiem

For my 200th blog post, I would like to draw your attention to two extraordinary musical offerings coming up shortly. Both will take place at Old North Church, 35 Washington Street , on Saturday, April 5 and Sunday, April 13.

Saturday, April 5 at 8:00 p:m: International pianist Sergey Schepkin will perform works by Bach, Schumann, Debussy and others in a concert to celebrate the restoration of Old North’s Steinway B piano. SchepkinBecker

Read Restoration of a Steinway in Marblehead from the Marblehead Reporter.

And on Palm Sunday, April 13 at 7 p.m., the Old North Festival Chorus will perform the rarely heard Brahms Requiem. Written by Brahms after his mother’s death, this Requiem is not the traditional Latin liturgy celebrating the dead, but a full-bodied and full-blooded German celebration of the living. It is a work of epic proportions and this is an incredible musical offering, also free to the public. 33088-Old-North-Church-Postcard_600 If you  – or somebody you know – are considering buying or selling a home and have questions about the market and/or current home prices, feel free to contact me on 781.631.1223 or Andrew Oliver is a Realtor with Harborside Realty in Marblehead
