March 2019 NO CONCERT
The only date available for a concert at the Saugerties United Methodist Church in March conflicted with an already scheduled Ulster Chamber Music Series Concert. Rather than attempting to divide patrons of classical music by making them chose between different trios at different venues at the same date and time, Saugerties Pro Musica did not schedule a concert.
