Pianist Monica Ohuchi in concert April 30

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

Richmond Beach Congregational UCC  welcomes the internationally acclaimed Monica Ohuchi back home to Seattle. Ms. Ohuchi will be presenting a program of Chopin Ballades and chamber pieces with select members of the Seattle Symphony at the Church on April 30 from 7 pm to 9 pm. Richmond Beach Congregational UCC is located at 1512 NW 195th St.

Chamber music is often described as the music of friends, due to the intimacy of the performance, which is often in a private salon. The music itself is performed by a small number of players with one player to a part.

Voluntary donations at this concert are welcome and will benefit local charities.

Childcare will be available for those who contact the church office at 206-542-7477 by Friday, April 23.
