Anna and Stani will play pieces by Felix Borowsky and Ovide Musin that were performed on a concert in the year 1904 at the original Holyrood Church, when Washington Heights was a neighborhood of estates and farmlands. Other music on the program is by Franz Schubert, Clara Schumann, and Claude Debussy.

The construction of Holyrood Church’s current location was completed in the year 1914. Come celebrate the church building’s 100th year anniversary with amazing music.
