The public is welcomed to hear renowned Franco-Canadian pianist Paul-André Bempéchat perform Haydn, Schubert, and Chopin on Saturday, Oct. 12, at 7:30 p.m at The First Church, 404 Concord Ave.
The recital celebrates 30 years of partnership between The First Church and the Unitarian Church of Désfalva, a remote, ethnically Hungarian village in the Transylvania region of Romania. Bempéchat will travel to Désfalva later in October to perform the same program for the villagers.
The recital is free with contributions welcome to benefit the education fund for high school and college-bound students in Désfalva. A reception will follow.
