Memorial concert planned in honor of Christopher Brown
On Thursday, June 2 at 4 p.m., Janice Weber will perform a memorial solo piano recital in honor of Christopher Brown, who resided in Marion and Wareham. The program will include pieces inspired by Brown's repertoire, including Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Debussy and Mussorgsky.
Brown, who passed away in November 2020, was a musician, piano restorer and technician.
He’s been described as a talented musician who was an active and loved member of the classical community on the South Coast, and as someone who gave “extraordinary attention” to the pianos he tended.
Last fall, friends donated to plant a pink dogwood at the Marion Music Hall. Those donations exceeded costs, so this concert will be free for all.
Keeping covid safety in mind, the doors and windows of the Music Hall will be open, and masks are welcome. The Music Hall is located at 164 Front St. in Marion.
