The concert is being presented in memory of Elizabeth Caesar, a devoted supporter who had a special place in the audience for the series. Caeser’s family generously donated to the series, and the music was selected with her and her family in mind, Kelley said. The performance is funded by the Catherine McCarthy Memorial Trust Fund in Andover and will last about one hour. A reception will follow.
”The Friends of the Lawrence Public Library is truly proud to present this concert. ... These two women are outstanding ...,” Kelley said.
