Saxophone quartet planning a Sunday afternoon performance at Edmond Town Hall
Posted: Apr 08, 2022 7:00 AM
The Friends of the Town Hall of Edmond are organizing a musical afternoon by The Argyle Saxophone Quartet on Sunday April 10, 2022, at 2 p.m.
The show will take place in the Alexandria Room at Edmond City Hall, 45 Main Street.
Tickets are $10 each, payable by cash or credit card at the door.
Friends who have been performing together for at least ten years, The Argyle Sax Quartet includes Julia Gerace, Donna Schmardle, Rick Myers and David Glassman. The band’s repertoire includes everything from contemporary French to jazz, pop and everything in between.
Julia Brunelle, Co-Chair of the Friends of Edmond Town Hall, said, “We are delighted to host an instrumental concert on Sunday afternoon in the beautiful Alexandria Hall. There has been limited live music programming available locally not only due to Covid but specifically in the afternoons for those who prefer not to go out in the evening. We hope this will be the first of many similar events for a different audience.
Proceeds from the concert support the Friends of Edmond Town Hall (FOETH), whose mission statement is “committed to bringing artistic and human programming and events to the community at large while maintaining the Town Hall Edmund’s history”.
The Friends recently changed their name from the former Mary Hawley Society. City Hall, completed in 1931 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was a gift from Newtown benefactor Mary Hawley.
FOETH is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. He is reportedly working on additional fundraising events, according to a press release issued in March after the rebranding.
