This year’s 14th annual “True Love” Valentine concert at First Parish in Bedford on Sunday, Feb. 12 highlighted mezzo-soprano Cynthia Mork, baritone Ben Sears, and pianist Brad Conner, together with special guests Heinrich Christensen and Robert Winkley performing works for four-hand piano.

The trio of Mork, Sears, and Conner is well known to Bedford audiences. They performed romantic favorites from the Great American Songbook, including “Night and Day” and “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” as well as selections from “Kiss Me Kate” and “High Society.”

Christensen and Winkley have been playing four-hand piano together for the past four years. They played works from Maurice Ravel, Paul Hindemith, Peter Warlock, and Cole Porter.

After the concert, guests were treated to a chocolate reception.
