Wednesdays On Wayne Street: Free Concert Series This October

The Adventures in the Musical Arts and First Wayne Street United Methodist Church present their twice-annual concert series, Wednesdays on Wayne Street (WOWS). Concerts are held every year in both June and October. As usual, this October concerts will begin on Wednesday afternoons at 12:15 P.M. and will showcase free 30-minute musical performances from talented local performers.

This concert series is a great afternoon break away from the work world and is free and open to the public. A light $5 luncheon will follow each recital.

The October 8th recital will feature Andre Gaskins, principal cellist of the Fort Wayne Philharmonic. Indianapolis-based concert pianist Eugenio Urrutia-Borlando will accompany Mr. Gaskins in a performance of the cello sonata by Dimitri Shostakovich.

October 15th’s recital will be performed by Mitchell Rorick and Laura Dallman, a husband and wife duo. They will present a program of organ and piano music to illuminate the theme of “What Wondrous Love.”

On the 22nd of October, the Jaenicke Consort, a woodwind chamber ensemble, comprised of Nancy Martin, flute, George Donner, oboe, Sue Devito, clarinet, Bryan Gibson, horn, and Sally Hinkle-Teegarden, bassoon. Their program will present a musical journey through a “world” of music.

The 29th of October recital will feature Mark Stachofsky, baritone, and Daniel Quinn, classical guitar, who will perform as a duo. First Wayne Street’s sanctuary is a wonderful acoustic space, particularly for music performances, and First Wayne Street has a long history of supporting and offering fine music.

Our music program includes vocal and handbell choirs for preschoolers through adults, and often features soloist and instrumentals. Local musical groups such as the Fort Wayne Phil and the Fort Wayne Children’s Choir perform in our sanctuary regularly.
