Having just settled down from our fabulous state fair (highlights of which
included freshly fried doughnuts, ALICE COOPER, and some terrifying carnival
rides), America's Coolest Small
Town is rocking some cool classical music events this fall.

Pianist Fran Belin has also announced the fall line-up for her Tuesdays with Fran
series of free lunchtime concerts, which start next week.
This fall, she is exploring "the golden age of the piano sonata,"
starting with music by Franz Joseph Haydn on September 13th. The series
continues the second Tuesday of October, November, and December with music by
Mozart, Beethoven, and Schubert.
That's in addition to the Liszt
recital by pianist Barbara Nissman, on November 5, also at Carnegie Hall Lewisburg.
Lewisburg is sounding pretty cool this fall.
