Sunday, February 8th at 3 pm is Crescent Concerts' Sixteenth Annual Showcase for Exceptional Young Artists at Crescent Avenue Presbyterian Church in Plainfield.  There are five outstanding performers this year:  Albert Gu, age 13, is an eighth grader from Basking Ridge and plays the piano with quite a flair; Kelsey Lee is a middle schooler from Summit, equally at home with Haydn and Chopin; Kingston Ho, the only violinist, hails from New Providence and will sail through a Saint-Saëns Rondo for us; Pauline Qin is a 14-year-old pianist from Bridgewater ably performing Chopin and Ravel; and 15-year-old Robert Argasinski of Cranford will certainly impress you with his command of the piano.  All five of these phenomenal young people edged out the many who auditioned, so do not miss this opportunity to hear the future of classical music! 

There is ample free, secure parking in Church lot (entrance on 1st Place - connected to church by walkway). Tickets are $20 for general admission, $15 for seniors, and $5 for students.  There will be a light reception immediately following the concert. Call 908-756-2468 or visit for more information about this and upcoming concerts.
