Manteca chamber-music series ends

After 29 years, the Manteca Kindred Arts Series of chamber music concerts has been ended.
“Our reasons for concluding our series are very basic,” spokesman Joseph Scott wrote in a statement representing the Manteca Kindred Arts Concert Association. “Many of our board members and volunteers are less able to continue participating at the energetic level such concerts require, due to relocating, aging and health concerns.
“We prefer not to focus on feelings of sadness but the joyful ones for having successfully provided beautiful music 29 years.”
Money, as always, was an issue.
Scott explained that producing an annual series in an “affordable manner by relying on our membership and donors” no longer is feasible.
The four-concert 2015-16 season ended Feb. 28 with a performance by San Francisco pianist Allegra Chapman at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, the series site since 1986.
