First Universalist Society in Franklin



LiveARTS brings outstanding classical musicians from New England and beyond to perform at our Franklin Universalist Society meetinghouse, to the delight of our congregation and visitors.

A nonprofit performing arts organization in Franklin, LiveARTS was formed to enrich the cultural life of our region of the Boston metropolitan area. Visitors simply love hearing quality chamber music in this intimate setting. For the 2015-2016 season, they list four diverse and exciting classical music performances!

Up Next

Sunday, April 24th, 3:30 PM, in our meetinghouse: Jan Müller-Szeraws, cello, and Sally Pinkas, piano.

Continuing in a tradition of “spotlighting” the members of the LiveARTS String Quartet as solo artists as well as ensemble players, LiveARTS presents the LiveARTS String Quartet’s cellist, Jan Müller-Szeraws, in a recital all his own. Now as soloist-with the support of his collaborator, pianist Sally Pinkas, a highly acclaimed musician widely known in New England and returning toLiveARTS for a third appearance-the spotlight will fall upon Jan and his cello, lighting the way into an exploration of works especially for that instrument whose musical voice is universally loved, a voice that has inspired an enormously satisfying and broad musical literature. What better note on which to close this lovely season of LiveARTS friends?

Tickets, available at the door, are $20 (general admission), $15 (seniors 60+), $10 (music students), and free for children aged 6-12. (Please no children under 6.) For more information, please visit
