MARYLAND CONSERVATORY PERFORMS SCHROEDER’S BEETHOVEN AS PART OF PEANTUS…NATURALLY

Free concert is a tribute to the Peanuts character Schroeder and his love of Beethoven

 

Belcamp, Md., January 12, 2016 — Schroeder’s Beethoven, a musical tribute to Beethoven that is part of the Harford County Public Library’s Peanuts…Naturally exhibition, will take place Thursday, February 11, at 7 p.m. at St. Matthew Lutheran Church Chapel, 1200 East Churchville Road in Bel Air.

The free concert, presented in partnership with the Maryland Conservatory of Music, features pianist Duke Thompson and students of the Maryland Conservatory of Music. The performance is a tribute to the Peanuts character Schroeder’s love of classical music and particularly Beethoven.
