Description

The Women’s Forum of Litchfield welcomes flutist Jennifer Berman and harpist Susan Knapp Thomas to perform a special holiday concert at St. Michael’s Parish, 25 South Street, just off the Litchfield Green on Thursday, December 7, beginning at 2:30pm. 

Jennifer Berman, flutist, began studying the flute at age seven in South Florida. She attended the North Carolina School of the Arts where she received both her High School diploma and Bachelor of Music degree as a student of Philip Dunigan. She then studied at the Manhattan School of Music for her Master of Music degree.

After freelancing in New York, she became a member of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago, where she was co-principal for 2 years. She moved to Connecticut in 1994, where she performs with many area orchestras, including the Hartford Symphony, Waterbury Symphony, Connecticut Virtuosi, Norwalk Symphony and New Britain Symphony.

Jennifer performs chamber music as a member of the Harmonia V Woodwind Quintet, a group that focuses on new and rarely heard works.

Susan Knapp Thomas, harpist, received her Bachelor’s Degree from the Eastman School of Music, and is a well-known Chamber, Orchestral and Solo Concert Artist and teacher throughout Connecticut and Southern New England.  She has enjoyed a long relationship with the Hartford Symphony, and was their featured concerto soloist in 2008, performing Mozart’s Flute and Harp Concerto with principal flutist, Grieg Shearer. She also performed as harpist for the U.S. Coast Guard Band from 1987-2002. Ms. Thomas regularly plays shows for the Goodspeed Opera House, in addition to touring shows for the Bushnell and the Shubert Theaters in Hartford and New Haven, CT.

The event will be open to non-Forum members with a $10 fee at the door, which includes a High Tea reception. The contacts for more information are 860-567-3966 and click the link below:
