With the arrival of warmer weather, the schedule of activities at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Ashtabula is bursting into full bloom. Poetry, piano and pasta are on the schedule for the weekend of May 16 and 17.
At 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 16, parishioner Dr. Janet Green will present a reading of her poetry in the Guild Room of the church. She holds a Ph.D. in Elizabethan English from the University of North Carolina. She has recently published a small paperback memoir describing her life with her mother, Elizabeth Lay Green, a memoir by her daughter Janet McNeill Green. The family name is no stranger in literary circles. Dr. Green is the daughter of Pulitzer Prize winner Paul Green. All are welcome and invited to attend.
On Sunday, May 17 at 2:00 in the afternoon, the Cleveland Orchestra Piano Trio will return to St. Peter’s to perform a program of classical music. Cleveland Orchestra Piano Trio members Stephen Rose, violin; Richard Weiss, cello; and Joela Jones, piano will be joined by guest artists Maximilian Dimoff, double bassist, and Dr. Timothy Kalil, pianist, for the concert in the sanctuary.
