Last week, Fredonia celebrated its 14th annual Baroque music festival, Bach & Beyond. It began Tuesday to Thursday with musical matinees at local restaurants called "Bach's lunches". Weekend performances were held at the Opera House in the village hall. I attended the Saturday evening performance. Highlights (for me) were Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 and a selection from Handel's Water Music. The musicians were superb.

The 1891 Fredonia Opera House was restored in the late 80's with a combination of grants, fundraisers and volunteer contributions. Look at that stage! It's a local treasure.
