PVUMC Community Concert Series 2017-18: Sahnas Quintet

October 13, 2017, 7:00pm - October 13, 2017, 11:00pm

Join us for the kick-off concert of the 2017-18 PVUMC Community Concert Series, on Friday, October 13, 7-9 pm in the church sanctuary, the building closest to Lincoln Drive. Pictured below are three of the five: the guitar-playing brothers, Demitri and Thano, and Lauren Sahnas on harp. Joining them will be Suzanne Lansford on violin, and Joe Garcia on percussion. Sahnas has been an audience favorite since our concert series began, and we're thrilled to have them back again. The group often performs at the Desert Botanical Gardens and at other venues and festivals in the Southwest. Don't miss the chance to see them again and hear their music: a beautiful blending of sounds and rhythms from their native Greek culture and the warm, inviting romance of the classical Spanish guitar. As with all our community concerts, there are no tickets or fees. We only ask that you give a free-will offering to show your love for the performers and the PVUMC Community Concert Series 2017-18, offering Music for Everyone. Our concerts are designed for all ages, and we welcome families. Free, certified onsite childcare is available during the concerts with a 48-hour reservation, making concerts like this one a great date night. To reserve a spot for your child(ren), please call the church at 602-840-8360, ext 134 at least 48 hours before the event. If you need to cancel childcare, even at the last minute, please call the number again. Please note that we have a strict no alcohol and no smoking policy.
