CAMDEN — Opus Black String Quartet will perform at 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 16, at Trinity Episcopal Church, 98 Main St. It is the first in the 2017 fall series.

The music of Opus Black String Quartet is, they say, a “Penchant for the Unorthodox.” Their catalog is reminiscent of a classic rock band, mixed up with alternative, pop and jazz, played in a traditional string quartet. The group is first violinist Liz Friedel, second violinist Shelby Dems, violist Allyson Sklar and cellist Kristen Kopf.

The second of three fall programs features The Grieco Sisters who will perform at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 21. Originally from Adams Center, they are known for their harmonies, and will perform a mix of gospel, jazz, Americana, Broadway and WW II era classics. The sisters are Toni Zygadlo from Gouverneur, Catherine Peyton of Adams Center, Lisa Smith of Watertown, Linda Ebensperger and Mary Jo Walsh both of Camden.

The program is held in the church with entrance through the front. The church is handicapped accessible through the parish hall from the parking lot at the rear of the church. Refreshments will be served. Instead of an admission fee, there will be a free will offering for the performers. For information, call 315-245-1987 or check the events listed on Facebook or cable access channel 99.
