Masterworks for Cello and Piano Performance on Saturday, December 3

Three amazing composers - Beethoven, Brahms, & Debussy performed by two amazing performers - David Kaplan, pianist and Ben Capps, cellist. Christ Church Summit is proud to announce its Lile Hall Concert performance Masterworks for Cello and Piano on Saturday, December 3 at 7:30 p.m.  A wine and cheese reception will follow the concert.

The Lile Hall Concert Series brings musicians of the highest caliber to perform in an intimate setting with resounding acoustics giving the audience close access to the music.  David Kaplan has been lauded for his “grace and fire” at the keyboard, and most recently by The New York Times for “striking imagination and creativity. He describes the evening’s musical pieces as ‘all being trail blazers in their own right remain as modern and fresh as if they had been written today’.  Ben Capps enjoys an extraordinarily versatile performing career as a soloist, chamber musician and orchestral principal. Ben’s playing has been praised as "most appealing" by the New York Times and "rich…and human" by the New York Sun. The pianist and cellist have known one another since childhood, both receiving chamber music from Itzhak Perlman. These world-renowned musicians will be sure to inspire and delight.

Tickets are $15.00. Seating is limited so make your reservations on-line today. For information about upcoming Lile Hall events visit or call (908) 273-5549 (Monday – Friday, 9 am – 4 pm). Christ Church is located at the corner of Springfield and New England Avenues in Summit.

Christ Church is an active faith community with a strong commitment to worship through the arts. It offers a variety of musical programs for all ages and levels. There are two services at Christ Church each Sunday, offering an array of music. The first service is more traditional. The Chancel Choir leads the musical worship, and the children's choirs and bells play often. The second service is a jazz meditation service, featuring jazz pianist Daniel Rufolo.
