An exhibit of some of the donated materials, refreshments and music will be part of this event. The reception is open to the public and isfree.

A specialist in Romantic repertoire, Jahn will perform works by Josef Rheinberger, J.S. Bach, Alexandre Guilmant, Messiaen and Marcel Lanquetuit during the concert.
