Speaking of gifts…

Lombardi's Field print
'Lombardi's Field' print by Carolyn Barnard

Carolyn Barnard, well-known local artist, gifted Civic Music with prints of her watercolor painting, “Lombardi’s Field”. With the goal of financing a video production of our illustrious history, Civic Music is selling these prints for $55. (They sell for $100 in local galleries and gift shops.) The unframed prints can be purchased at the table in the lobby at the first concert or through our website. Thanks to the generosity of Wildwood Galleries Ltd., a framed print is on display.
