The 2018-2019 Music on the Hill concert series at High Mowing School begins another year with “Love and Enlightenment” on Nov. 11.

The afternoon concert is a musical tale of love and enlightenment featuring vocal and chamber music as well as serenades and divertimenti from the Classical and Romantic periods – the age of enlightenment.

Led by Concertmaster Danilo Bonina and Co-Director Alexander Johnson, the afternoon features works by Mozart, Haydn, Schubert and Brahms.

"We are thrilled and honored to present ‘Love and Enlightenment’ with music of the age of enlightenment and the subsequent romantic period, times of stirring ideals of freedom, reason, democracy, and expression; laying the groundwork for modern western society,” says High Mowing music teacher Andrew Koutroubas, who is working to coordinate the concert.

“While these ideals seem to be increasingly under fire around the world, we hope you will take a respite from your busy lives to attend our performance where you can appreciate and enjoy these universal values that reside timelessly within this music,” Koutroubas says.

The concert will be a 3 p.m. on the Pine Hill campus at High Mowing School. The suggested donation is $25; children younger than 12 will be admitted free. Refreshments will be sold.
