Another free “Brown Bag Lunch Concert” is taking place Friday, this time honoring the late Charles Anderson (1929-2017), who played the string bass in the Owensboro Symphony.

Charles’ wife Carolyn and his children are sponsoring the event, which is dedicated to his love of music. The concert will feature a solo string bass player, while other musicians are faculty from Middle Tennessee State University, where Anderson earned his bachelor of music degree. 

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.

The concert features musicians Tiffany Freeman (string bass), Conor Bell (bassoon), Kathleen Conor (oboe), and Kirsten Ahnell (clarinet). The program includes works by J.S. Bach, Tomasi, Saint-Saens, Drangonetti, Brandon, and Lussier.

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.

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.
