The Schuyler County Historical Society has announced special music and an open house at Schuyler County’s Historic Lawrence Chapel.
On Sunday, September 24th, 2023, the Schuyler County Historical Society will once again open the doors of Lawrence Chapel to the public. At 1 p.m., local musician Sophie Till will provide a musical concert inside the beautiful old space. Immediately following there will be a light reception and open house.
Sophie Till is a resident of Watkins Glen. She is Associate Professor of Violin at Maywood University, in Scranton, PA and Director of Marywood’s String Project for children ages 4-18.
She is also founder of The Till Project, an international organization for string players. Sophie and her husband Patrick host a Summer Symposium in their Watkins Glen home and barn, with sting players coming from around the world.
She is an active performer and her recent recital for WSKG TV’s series, Expressions will be aired in November.
In addition to playing the violin, she is a passionate trail runner and has embarked on running the complete Finger Lakes Trail with Dr. Martha Hawksworth of Lakeside Veterinary Services and the two dogs. For more information on Sophie’s work, head to her website at www.tillproject.com.
