It is a pleasure to welcome Sirena Huang and Pi-Hsun Shih back to the Avon Library. Their first performance here, in 2015, was nothing short of electrifying. Ms. Huang and Ms. Shih will hold you spellbound!
Next concert: March 18 - Luiz de Moura Castro, piano
Avon is fortunate to be able to claim Luiz de Moura Castro as one of its own. A native of Brazil, Luiz came to our town to take a faculty position at the Hartt School of the University of Hartford where he served as chairman of the piano department for 15 years and still continues to be a much-in demand teacher. He is a world-renowned concert pianist whose playing is a treasure to behold.
Next concert: March 25 - Bill Holloman, multi-instrumentalist
