Blackledgemusic, Inc. will be performing a program on Sunday, September 25  2:30 – 3:30 PM of chamber music for diverse instruments. June 26 was to be Blackledgemusic,Inc.’s first concert at the Carousel Museum in 2016, life having interfered with scheduling and funding. We were excited to be featuring a diverse instrumentation with Tom Labadorf on clarinet and Amy Jones on viola as the core.

Tom went on vacation in early June and died in a motorcycle accident in Tennessee. Blackledgemusic, Inc. will honor Tom and all he has done by performing Claude Debussy in an arrangement by an Italian trio which Tom liked and was purchased for the June concert.

Other works on the program will feature flutes, viola, guitar and double bass. Free with general admission, please call 860-585-5411 for more information or visit .thecarouselmuseum.org
