Middlesex Community College will continue its Spring 2024 “A World of Music” concert series highlighting the works of esteemed composer and pianist Frédéric Chopin. A Chopin Celebration will take place at 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 3 at the MCC Concert Hall on the Bedford Campus.

Bedford resident and noted pianist Paul-André Bempéchat will perform an all-Chopin recital. Nocturnes in B Major and E Major, Ballade in A flat Major, and the Sonata in B Minor will be featured.

“I’m delighted to be performing for the first time at MCC, just ‘down the road’ from our new home and studio in Bedford,” Bempéchat said. “The community welcome has been heartwarming, and I’m particularly happy to bring an array of Chopin’s compositions – from the intimate to the powerfully heroic, on his birthday weekend.”

“A World of Music” will hold additional performances at MCC’s Bedford Concert Hall, including Duos and Trios for Oboe, Flute and Piano at 8 p.m. on Friday, April 5; an MCC Student Recital at 12:30 p.m. on Monday, April 22; and Duo du Sud at 3 p.m. on Sunday, June 2. 

Having kicked off the Spring 2024 season with a concert on Sunday, Feb. 18, the Lowell Chamber Orchestra will perform a second time at MCC’s Richard and Nancy Donahue Family Academic Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 4.

All concerts are free and open to the public.

MCC’s Concert Hall is located in Henderson Hall at 591 Springs Rd. in Bedford. Parking is available on-campus. For more information, visit www.middlesex.mass.edu/worldofmusic/ 

Bempechat also is scheduled to play on Friday at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 404 Concord Ave., Belmont, beginning at 7:30 p.m. The concert is a benefit for the church’s instrument fund.
