BHKH Together in Music! is coming to Blue Hill in May.  The musicians coordinated their residency to coincide with GSA Arts Festival.  We look forward to seeing cellist Hannah Collins and pianist Hannah Sun again. They will be joined by Laura Weiner, horn (new to BHKH) and Matt Consul, viola.  Matt we all know from the Library Concerts last summer.  More on the visit next month.
