Good Shepherd Kicks Off Evening Concerts

From our friend Ed Jaworski, president of the Madison-Marine-Homecrest Civic Assocation:

The free, Sunday evening, fall concert series that Good Shepherd Church has been presenting for 15 years is underway.  It is perhaps the major classical music program in the southern half of Brooklyn.  Its reputation has spread so that attendees come from other parts of the borough, and it attracts some of the City’s finest young musicians.
Michael Fontana, Good Shepherd’s Director of Music and the producer of the chamber music recitals, said:  “This series is important in serving as a major benefit to cultural life at this end of Brooklyn, since it means people don’t have to travel far or pay a high price to enjoy high quality music in a beautiful setting.”
Good Shepherd is located on Avenue S between Brown and Batchelder Streets in the Marine Park area; parking is available on surrounding residential streets; restaurants are nearby.  For additional information, phone 718-998-2800.

Following is the schedule:
