Another free “Brown Bag Lunch Concert” is taking place Wednesday, this time featuring musicians Tevin Vincent (baritone vocalist) and Patrick Ritsch (piano).

The lunch concert will be hosted by Trinity Episcopal Church (720 Ford Ave.) from 12:15-1 p.m. Concertgoers are invited to bring their own lunch to enjoy during the program. Organizers said there is ample room for social distancing. Masks are recommended but not required.

Music selections include Sondheim, Kern, Hogan and others. In addition to performing, musicians discuss their instruments, composers, and music they are playing.

The free lunchtime concert series was started in 2018 by Kentucky Wesleyan College Clarinet Professor Kirsten Ahnell. Ahnell’s intent is to bring music to the public. The programs are mostly classically oriented and feature small groups of musicians.  

“Some people think classical music is dying or the general public has no interest in the genre,” Ahnell said. “Since there is such a wide variety of classical music, I feel there is something for everyone.” 

In order to help enlighten the audience, Ahnell acts as a moderator for the programs. She has the musicians speak about the composers and pieces they are performing, discuss their instruments and answer questions from the audience after the program.
