Music at the Crossroads Returns!

For the first time since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic the Edwards Church series Music at the Crossroads will be returning. For this first concert, on Saturday, November 13 at 7:30 pm, church member Dave Haughey will be returning with his cello quartet, 1200 Horsehairs, to play an eclectic range of music including arrangements of music by Leonard Cohen, David Bowie, Queen, as well as some traditional music and a few of Dave's original compositions. 1200 Horsehairs is a band of four cellos playing popular and new music ranging from traditional to metal to modern original compositions. Its members, Dave Haughey, Pablo Issa, Karl Knapp, and Wayne Smith, are internationally active cellists who have played with the likes of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, The Paul Winter Consort, Eugene Friesen, and the Moody Blues, among many others. They have been on faculty at the University of Alaska Fairbanks and the Hartt School, and have taught and presented master classes at The Berklee College of Music, The University of Massachusetts, The Rio International Cello Encounter, Amherst College, and Depauw University.

          In-person attendance for Music at the Crossroads will be capped to 25 people. Because of this pre-registration is required. Please email or call (413) 584-5500 by November 10th by noon to register. A confirmation email will be sent to the first 25 people, so the sooner you get in contact the better!
